About the Program
A predecessor to the Black Lives Matter movement, Edythe Boone has long embodied its rallying cry. For decades, the celebrated Bay Area muralist has introduced underserved youth and seniors to the transformative power of art. Filmed over three years, A New Color presents the world through Edy’s eyes.
As she engages with various social issues—including the death of her nephew Eric Garner to police brutality—the documentary shows how the work of one resilient woman reverberates throughout a community. Directed by Mo Morris. (2015, 57 min. No MPAA rating.)
A Q&A with director Mo Morris follows the screening.
