September 8, 2016

‘White Colour Black’ is a British film by director/writer/producer Joseph a. Adesunloye that follows a young, hedonistic photographer named Leke (played by Dudley O’Shaughnessy) living in London. While in the midst of what will surely be the critical success Leke has been working towards, a family death forces him to travel to Senegal where he embarks on the journey of a lifetime, re-discovering himself and the places of his past. ‘White Colour Black’ will premiere at the 60th London Film Festival this October. Watch the trailer below!
