One Drop

Short documentary with satirical elements about Tarikh Janssen's career switch from actor to top swimmer. 

Successful actor Tarikh Janssen, tired of persistent typecasting, leaves the film world behind and returns to top swimming: “Swimming knows no colour, swimming is pure.”

In this whirlwind film, director Ivan Barbosa follows and questions Tarikh's remarkable career switch, exploring taboo subjects such as white innocence, black identity thinking and the Black Lives Matter movement to expose the absurdity and seriousness of today's racism debate.
