Director Statement

True Colors of Society was one of the most fun and for sure, a challenging movie to make. I wrote the screenplay intending it to tell a story while also exploring the idea of social diversity and racism in modern societies! I got to work with an amazing lead actor and an incredible cinematographer. I worked with a large and experienced crew, which ended up boosting creativity by a lot. I hope everyone who watched the film has had something to take away from it!
