No Shade sheds light on 'colourism' prejudice

The issue of colourism - where people from the same race are prejudice towards those with darker skin tones - is at the heart of a new film, created by a London dermatologist.

No Shade tells the story of a bar manager who wants a girlfriend with lighter skin, and a photographer who feels pressured to change herself to meet his idea of beauty.

We spoke to stars Kadeem Pearse and Adele Oni.

The film will have its World Premiere at the Rio Cinema in Dalston in June
