BlaxploItalian is a documentary tracing 100 year evolution of Black presence in Italian Cinema. 

The Director: Fred Kuwornu is consumed by the lack of representation of Afro-Italians on screen and also the exoticism, stereotyping and  dehumanizing nature of the few roles that were available in Italian cinema over the years.

Released in 2016, it is an important and beautiful research which taps into the very real, yet previously untold, struggles faced by African-American, Afro-Latino and Afro-Italian actors and filmmakers.
