Whether you are still thinking about it or not, these Black people are still drowning.
Stuart Gatt, filmmaker of My Beautiful White Skin, wants to make sure that you think about these Black people in the Mediterranean, with his new film, CLANDESTINE.
Excerpt from CLANDESTINE Kickstarter Page:
"According to the United Nations, the death toll of refugees crossing the Mediterranean Sea has skyrocketed in 2015 to over 2,000 leading to the crisis being labelled ‘The Challenge of our Age’ by a UN Ambassador.

CLANDESTINE is a short film written by Award Winning Filmmaker Stuart Gatt, produced by Kelly Goncalves and Kate Glover and supported by two affiliated charities Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders (“MSF”) and Human Rights at Sea. ALL PROFITS FROM THE FILM WILL BE DONATED TO MSF to support the heroic work of doctors involved in search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean."
