"Whitewashing" is a term for the practice of portraying BIPOC characters (real or fictional) by white actors. Here Rébecca Chaillon appropriates this term to address the issue of skin lightening. Together with Aurore Déon, they explore the ambiguous relationship of a Black woman in white society between being assigned as a caretaker and taking care of herself.
