In the UK and the US the creative industry have been largely criticised about the lack of BAME talent on our screens. This became so much of a problem earlier this year, that it birthed the hashtag, #OscarsSoWhite on TwitterÂ and caused many famous actors such as Michael Moore, Will SmithÂ and Ava DuVernay to boycott the event.
In this set of interviews, young people discuss their opinion on the matter, talking about the well known notion that Black actors always seem to die first in films and Asian actors are usually cast in a very stereotypical light. They also discuss the importance of diversity within film and that BAME actors are just as talented as white actors.
