Sapphire and the Slave Girl

This film is loosely based on the 1950's British detective film SAPPHIRE, in which two Scotland Yard detectives investigate the murder of a young woman who is passing for white. Referencing everyone from Marlowe to Shaft, SAPPHIRE AND THE SLAVE GIRL situates its analysis in the persona of the hard-boiled detective in order to highlight transgressions of identity and location. Featuring a multifarious cast of identity-shifting Sapphires, this fast paced genre-bash visualizes and problematizes how identity is negotiated and performed within urban spaces.
