COLORBLIND: A Heartfelt Journey Through Race and Colorblindness
COLORBLIND follows the story of Magdalene, a colorblind black artist, and her son Monet as they move into a new neighborhood. The film takes the audience through a heart-wrenching journey of the complexities of race and social injustices, seen through the lens of a colorblind mother and son.
When their racist landlord, Walton, is forced to babysit Monet, he discovers a more colorful world through the child’s black-and-white perspective. The film proudly comprises a majority BIPOC crew and was developed by color scientists to accurately display colorblindness and metaphorically address racism.
Starring Chantel Riley, Trae Maridadi, Garry Chalk, Mike Dopud, and Seth Whittaker, COLORBLIND has received 5 nominations at Whistler Film Festival, was the Winner at Silver Wave Film Festival, and screened at Montreal, Vancouver, and Toronto Black Film Festival. It will also be screening at the Ottawa Black Film Festival in March and in the Calgary Black Film Festival in May.
COLORBLIND is a must-watch film that will open your eyes to the struggles faced by those with color blindness and the complexities of racism. Gravitas Ventures will release COLORBLIND on digital platforms on April 4, 2023, and with a running time of 90 minutes, it promises to be an emotionally captivating feature.
