Deconstructing Cinematic Hallucinations: Unravelling the Psychosis of Whiteness

Join us for an enlightening workshop event featuring acclaimed author Kehinde Andrews as he delves into the thought-provoking themes of his book, “The Psychosis of Whiteness: The Celluloid Hallucinations of ‘Amazing Grace’ and ‘Belle’.” This groundbreaking work challenges the prevailing narratives surrounding transatlantic slavery and critically examines the influence of mainstream films on the perception of Whiteness.

Drawing on a comprehensive discourse analysis of two major British movies, “Amazing Grace” and “Belle,” Kehinde Andrews sheds light on the inherent irrationality of Whiteness as a social structure. He argues that these films perpetuate a celluloid hallucination that reinforces the psychosis of Whiteness, suppressing Black agency, downplaying the role of racism, and distancing Britain from the horrors of slavery.

In this workshop, Kehinde Andrews will guide participants through a deep exploration of the filmic representations of transatlantic slavery and engage in insightful discussions about the broader implications of the psychosis of Whiteness. Together, we will challenge existing narratives, interrogate power dynamics, and explore avenues for change.

As we gather to deconstruct cinematic portrayals and dismantle the barriers to understanding, we invite academics, researchers, activists, and all those passionate about social justice to join us for this thought-provoking event. Kehinde Andrews will share his groundbreaking research, engage in stimulating dialogue, and foster an environment for critical reflection and growth.
