"Black Pete: Behind the Makeup" from Tiny Little Doclab on Vimeo.
Zwarte Piet, or Black Pete, is a controversial friend to Santa Claus, or Sinterklaas, in the Netherlands.

Is he a racist figure? Is he a racist tradition?
We spoke to pro- and anti-black Pete activists and learned that Black Pete is not going to be around much longer.
