I hoped not to have to include this, but some poeple seem to think this is about a certain ethnic group. The song originally was, but this movie isn't. This movie is about everyone who has been hurt due to racism no matter colour or creed.
In the week of the UN Anti-Racism conference, I bring you my very first flash movie. Dedicated to all victims of racism, Past, Present and Future.
This is a movie set to the song Strange Fruit, as performed by Nina Simone. Strange fruit, originally a poem, was written by Abel Meeropol in 1936, and made famous by Billie Holiday. It was called Song of the Century by Time (magazine) of december 1999.
Strange Fruit (the song) condemned racism, specifically the lynching of African Americans.
The version of the song used in this movie was released by Nina Simone on her 1965 album Pastel Blues
