Lighting dark skin for the screen

HBO's Emmy winning TV show Insecure has been praised for its portrayal of the black experience.

It follows two early 30s black women navigating their lives in Los Angeles - covering the big issues of feminism, race and the stereotypes people of colour are forced into.

The show's director of photography, Ava Berkofsky, tells Dan Damon that filming people of colour historically has been an afterthought in film and television.
