Mulignans: A Short Film By Shaka King

Director Shaka King presented his short film, Mulignans, at the Sundance Film Festival a few weeks ago and this is satire at it’s best.

A girl that I follow on Twitter hit my DM’s with the link to the film and since we have the same tastes on Twitter, I knew I could trust this would be good.

The term “mulignans” is Italian-American slang for a black man (nigger), derived from Italian dialect for the word “eggplant.”

With King starring in the film, the reversal of cultures puts into perspective the racism you can find scattered in some mob movies and culture. Enjoy below.
