Leigh-Anne: Race, Pop & Power nominated for Documentary of the Year

Leigh-Anne: Race, Pop & Power is one of the nominations for DOCUMENTARY OF THE YEAR at the 2022 Visionary Honours.

In this powerful documentary, pop star Leigh-Anne Pinnock tells of her experiences as the only Black member of the band Little Mix, and as a black woman in the music industry as a whole. She confronts those closest to her as well as those she has worked with within the music industry and has difficult but necessary conversations about black representation, colourism and racism. She also explores how she can use her platform and privilege to help to tackle these issues.

Richard Bond of Dragonfly TV said:

“Leigh-Anne showed real courage in opening up her personal life to make a film that would shine a light on institutional racism, and we are absolutely thrilled it has been nominated for this prestigious award.”

The nominations shortlist was selected by a leading panel of critics, journalists, authors, producers and activists. The public then voted for the person/work they felt made the biggest social impact.

Winners will be announced at a star-studded ceremony on the 1st March at BAFTA Piccadilly, hosted by Sir Lenny Henry.

The Visionary Honours are supporting YoungMinds – the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people’s mental health.
