A New Color features acclaimed mural artist and educator, Edythe Boone on her life’s mission to positively touch as many people as she can. This verité documentary film captures Edy’s spirit as we witness her in action - teaching, painting, community building, and telling stories, often all at the same time. Refusing to be inhibited by barriers of class, color, gender, or age, this unlikely hero shows it is possible at 74 to empower young people and to motivate elders to contribute and continue learning. Audiences will come away from the film with hope, understanding and a sense of connection – inspired to live a life that matters.
