After writing "I am exhausted and I want you to know why", Singapore-based venture capitalist Michael Lints was looking for a way to help bring systemic racism to the attention of corporates. Oftentimes people would see racism but have difficulty understanding how these issues have reverberating and persistent effects on the individuals targeted as well as society-at-large. After the article, many people asked: "what can I do besides listen?" The answer is not only complex but requires input and insight from different layers of society, different generations, and different backgrounds.
This documentary — with the working title Broken Chains — is meant to give perspectives on how we move on from here. Systemic racism is prevalent in corporate life, sports, social life, etc. We can't solve all these problems in one go but we intend to give some insight into one of the larger issues amongst people of color: access to opportunity and the generation of wealth.
