2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Carman will write and direct a feature-length film, What Color is Blue, about the internal impotence that queer and trans youth feel while facing the people, politicians, and organizations that do not want them to exist. The film will follow Alexandra, a young black trans woman, and her partner Lulu, a non-binary femme. As they go to political organizing meetings, visit prisons, perform at DIY art spaces, and eat pizza by the river, they wonder about the meaning of life and what they should be doing to protect their lives and those of their friends. Carman aims to hire queer and trans people and people of color for the cast and production crew.
