White Out (2004)

What are the dynamics involved in the construction of race?
And in which contexts are they inserted and verified?

Athlete, servant, entertainer, performer, champion, victim, controlled bodies and fierce bodies, on the move, on their toes, looking over their backs, moving, shaking, hustling, ultimately domesticated by the mediums which bring these bodies into contact with ‘us’. The comedies and tragedies of popular culture rest on the possibility for these roles not to exchange, but to interchange. The poetics of this perpetual shift between offense and defense.
