A new Swedish film about a group of immigrants awaiting deportation is making waves on the Internet for its title: The White People.
The film, due out in Sweden next month, is described as a "topical thriller" about the prison system, power and hierarchies. It's not exactly clear why the film is called The White People (do they play the villains?) but we're having a hard time not picturing a hunch of pale hipsters zombie-walking toward a prison complex, ready to descend on the unsuspecting brown folk.
The film stars Issaka Sawadogo as a prison guard (not a white person). Watch a clip from the provocative new movie below — and hope for a Marlon Wayans-style parody soon:
