What if white people were visible minorities - victims of workplace racism? That's how it is in the world of Jaded, a sharp and funny mockumentary that will get you talking about racism and discrimination. Jade Stone can't get a break. She's got qualifications and drive, but despite her MBA, she's working twice as hard to get half as far. Racism is never funny, of course. But through clever role reversals, this tongue-in-cheek comedy allows us to laugh while confronting the realities of overt and systemic racism. This film is part of the Work For All series, produced by the National Film Board of Canada, with the participation of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.
