    BLACKCARD | A PETE CHATMON PICTURE MEMBERSHIP HAS ITS CHALLENGES
    It would be just another day for Leonard, except The Commission, a shadow organization tasked with keeping
    members up to snuff on their “blackness”, is hot on his trail for his latest infraction. An afternoon with the love
    of his life, Lona, goes off course as a missing ID card escalates into questions of loyalty, life, and love.

  4. Director’s Note
    4
    WHO ARE YOU? Three words that perhaps form the biggest question we face as individuals and one posed in
    film since the medium began. continues in this tradition, asking to whom must one be loyal and at
    what price? Should we lose individuality for the sake of community … is the happiness of our loved ones more
    important than our own?
    Through a delicate mixture of comedy, satire, and ultimately drama, captures the journey of one
    couple trying to answer the above questions. The universality of this issue shines through the specifics of their
    story, creating a reflection on what we all experience.
