Dear White People Concept Trailer
First-time feature director Justin Simien is preparing Dear White People, a satire based on Simien’s own experiences at a predominately white university.
Dear White People follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.
This prosiming project (by the look of that attention-grabing trailer) is in early stages and the production team has recently reached (and surpassed) their $25,000 fundraising goal to cover their pre-production costs through an effective campaign. But there’s a little under a month for the alloted time to be over, so if you want, you can still donate at their Indiegogo page HERE.
