However, it all worked out. First, we did not play on blackface, but played on the theme of the night sky. Secondly, I decided to reinsure myself and showed our case to a familiar African-American director from Los Angeles. I asked if he took it as a blackface and if we should worry. He replied that everything was fine, the communication was readable and did not cause rejection. It calmed me down.
As a result, in the spring of 2020, we took silver and bronze at the KIAF with this story.
What is indicative of this case? First, it is about the joint work of strategy and creativity, and secondly, about surprise.
