Synopsis:
In the wake of one of the greatest failed social experiments in the history of mankind, "I'm not Black, I'm Coloured" is one of the first documentary films to look at the legacy of apartheid from the viewpoint of the Cape Coloured. A people who in 1994, embraced the concept of Desmond Tutu's all encompassing rainbow nation, but soon thereafter realized that freedom, privilege, economic growth, and equal representation would not include them. A people who, for more than 350 years, have been disregarded, ignored, belittled, and stripped of anything they can call their own, enduring a complex psychological oppression and identity crisis unparalleled in South African history. "I'm Not Black, I'm Coloured" explores the rich history of the majority population of Cape Town, the Cape Coloured, and their complex existence in a country still struggling with racial identity. Local elders, community leaders, pastors, educators, and college students give first-hand accounts of their past experiences under apartheid and discuss their concerns for the future as tensions continue to build. Witness the discovery of their ancestral roots through a special genetic DNA project in South Africa.
