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.
