COLORVILLEDirected by Ushmey Chakraborty, Wyatt Hall
In the world of Colorville, citizens are only allowed to color the objects that are assigned to their color (A purple man can only color an eggplant, a red woman can only color a stop sign). The short follows the story of Momma Brown who teaches her son to dream bigger than his color permits him too and instills in him self-belief in a world that is designed for him to fail. This short is a love letter to parents, particularly immigrant parents, who not only have to raise a child through the vicissitudes of life but also have to deal with a system that is designed for them to fail. As an immigrant myself who hopes to one day have a family, this short was my way of processing my fears while also admiring those that have done so before me.

Discarded dreams. Forgotten memories. Missing pieces. These animated films will be where we put it all back together again.
