Black cinema has had a rough time of late, with films including ‘Ragtime’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’ failing to make the top 100 in box office.
Now, the black cinema movie is making headlines for all the wrong reasons, with many viewers accusing the likes of ‘Rags to Riches’ and its ‘Racism 101’ lessons being used to justify discrimination.
The trailer for ‘Ragnorak’ opens with a young woman explaining to her mother that she has a black boyfriend who is an avid fan of ‘American Horror Story’ (or ‘AHS’).
The trailer also includes footage of a man who has been dating a black woman for years.
After hearing that she had a boyfriend, she is horrified to find out that he has a different job, while the other man works as a cashier at a cinema.
The next day, her mum calls to ask if she wants to go to the cinema to watch the movie, and the two girls agree to do so.
The movie follows two teenagers who are both on a date with a black girl who they meet through a friend’s website.
After hearing her story, the pair decide to go see the film together.
The girl eventually turns out to be a racist, and her boyfriend is sent to prison for hate crime, and subsequently, to a black prison in a predominantly white state.
While many of the black movie stars interviewed by MTV News had previously been outspoken in their criticism of racism in the cinema industry, none had previously spoken out about the film before.’
Ragnoraak’ was directed by Sam Raimi, who also wrote and directed ‘Black Mirror’.
