The Colour of Darkness


The Colour of Darkness is set in two continents dealing with themes of discrimination and violence. These themes are manifested within both the intercultural tensions in the cosmopolitan city of Melbourne and the ongoing struggles within the caste system in India. A young Australian journalist is sent to investigate an attack on an Indian student, setting in motion a chain of events with significant personal and societal consequences. Inspired by the frenzied media coverage that followed real-life attacks on Indian students in Melbourne, director Girish Makwana has crafted a detailed and immersive narrative that explores the real ramifications of deep-rooted discrimination.
