THREAD: And now for some answers! What was the inspiration for the #ZARQA trailer? Hubby insists I tell everyone he hasn't run off with a white, hot yoga instructor. We are still married (more or less happily) & the trailer is fictional and not based on anyone's life.
Think-pieces by authors such as @amil, @TazzyStar & @nansequiturs inspired me. They critique the romantic comedy trope in @TheBigSickMovie & #MasterOfNone among others: brown men choosing white women as the highly desired trophy while brown women are disposable side characters.
Although @TheBigSickMovie was based on real life, the South Asian women in the film were portrayed as the undesirable, reductive stereotypes, especially when compared to @kumailn's cool white love interest @zoeinthecities. Even with a brown male lead, the film was white-centred.
