Oreos With Attitude

USA, 1990 (MIFF 1991, Fiction)

Director: Larry Carty

A wicked tongue-in-cheek satire that turns racial stereotyping inside out. Janet and Richard are a black "buppie" couple living in New York City. After calculating that the risk of producing a dark skinned baby is too great, they adopt a white child to, in their words, "promote racial harmony". But little Jimmy has other ideas; kind of.

Another knockout short from Apparatus Productions. Producer Christine Vachon will introduce.
