Clashing Differences

Germany – 2023


Rebellion is in the air when a group of queer and coloured women are gathered for a panel conversation by a white feminist organization, in a clumsy attempt to diversify their upcoming conference.

At a time when many organizations seem to view diversity as checking the right boxes for show rather than genuinely being inclusive, filmmaker Merle Grimme’s Clashing Differences uses humor to take a frank look at nuanced, layered, and complex topics like labor exploitation, colorism, and intersectionality.
