But what’s the big problem with some movie about exclusively white people frolicking about some unnamed city, playing twee music? I mean, Stuart Murdoch has never been quiet about his Scottish heritage (Additionally, Scotland is country with a 96% white majority). It’s just a film, is it not? Why does some random Pitchfork writer want to make white men angry? But there’s reasoning behind Sahim’s beliefs. Why would a film based off of a music project that was created to put women musicians on a pedestal be so exclusionary (even when the project involves a few women of color) and boring?
