TO BE US: To Work is a narrative shattering documentary that holds a mirror to the treatment of Black people in the workplace. This documentary features participants from a diverse class of professions and disciplines who share a common experience. For many participants, the time of filming was their first opportunity to name and vocalize their pain. Each interview explores recurring themes of racism, misogynoir, retaliation, wrongful terminations, and discriminatory practices from employers. TO BE US: To Work also carefully highlights the psychological and chronic health consequences of racism. The physical act of working is exhausting in itself, but what happens to our body when it’s in a constant state of stress?
