Winner of the AUDIENCE AWARD Special Mention at Mill Valley Film Festival & BEST SHORT DOC AWARD at Peace on Earth Film Festival A NEW COLOR is coming to San Franciso (7/29) and Berkeley (8/4)!Added to the calendar on Friday Jul 1st, 2016 3:03 PM
The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival runs July 21st- August 7th, 2016 at various venues in the Bay Area. Each day of the festival will consist of films screenings, filmmaker panels networking events and parties.
Bay Area artist and civil rights activist Edythe “Edy” Boone is a sprightly septuagenarian who seems only to gain energy over the years. Since she was a girl, this celebrated muralist (i.e. The San Francisco Women’s Building) has aspired “to develop a new color no one has seen in life.” Edy paints walls to build bridges toward unity when the chokehold death of her nephew and his final words - “I Can’t Breathe” - ignite a national outcry for racial justice. Her unflagging drive and determination are captured by Berkeley filmmaker Mo Morris in this film’s every frame. A New Color (57 min) preceded by Arc of Justice (22 min).
Director Mo Morris, Subject Edythe Boone and Equal Justice Society’s Allison Legal Director, Allison Elgert in person for the Q & A.
