Too Black for TV
Added on 6/16/2017
With over 8 million social media views, this film for the Guardian is about Nayara Justino who thought her dreams had come true when she was selected as the Globeleza carnival queen in 2013 after a public vote on one of Brazil’s biggest TV shows. But some regarded her complexion to be too dark to be an acceptable queen. Nayara and her family wonder what this says about racial roles in modern Brazil.
