BUFF 2018 Opening night premiere: No Shade explores the hardships of the modern dating world through the dysmorphic presence of colorism as well as the fetishization of black women in a way that is tactful and honest. Jade is both effervescent and relatable as a 28 year old single woman of dark complexion who just “can't seem to get it right,” let alone liberate herself from her unrequited love for the repressive and colorist Danny. The world through her eyes is both a quirky and tumultuous obstacle course of courtship catastrophes and heart-gripping silences. Despite Jade's line up of Tinder flops and her challenges in the friend-zone, she is easy to engage with and adorable. Jade's charisma, quirk, beauty, vulnerability and perseverance throughout the film make her a thoughtful heroine with a twist of comedic spunk in the end.
One of several BUFF nominated films to be distributed by streaming giant Netflix, Potato Potahto had its U.K premiere at the iconic BT Tower, host venue of BUFF 2017, the 12th annual British Urban Film Festival.
