An honest, at times absurd, conversation about being a Black woman in America, "The Mirror" is a short animated film that weaves the personal stories, experiences and reflections of nine Black women talking about their interactions with white people. On the subject of swimming, "Black people have no buoyancy," says one white woman with assurance. "Your people have an inability to master the proper use of the English language," says another. “The Mirror” is a painful, absurd, and revealing take on what it is like to be a Black woman in America.
