ABOUT THE FILM
COLOUR ME is a documentary film that will change the way you think about race. We follow motivational speaker Anthony McLean into the ethnically explosive city of Brampton, Ontario – where is his forced to critically examine his own identity while mentoring six youth grappling with theirs. At a time when statistics on black youth in crime, drop-outs, and pregnancy are rising, we ask ‘why’ while exploring the confines of race, the complexity of identity and the need to find our voice.
