A New Color is a joy-filled, heart-rending story about community, art and lives that matter. 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 (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 Eric Garner and his final words – “I Can’t Breathe” – ignite a national outcry for racial justice.
A Woman Like Me is a documentary that interweaves the real story of Alex Sichel, diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2011, with the fictional story of Anna Seashell (played by Lili Taylor), who manages to find the glass half full when faced with the same diagnosis. The documentary follows Alex as she uses narrative film to explore what is foremost on her mind while confronting a terminal disease: parenting, marriage, faith, life, and death.
A young woman lives alone with her cat in a small town. The two are complete opposites: whereas the woman is good-hearted and benevolent, the cat is a hunter-killer type. The young woman has a secret: she is in love with her neighbour, a boxer. Thanks to her cat’s adventures, she will have closer contact with her love.
