Description: The Color of Fear is an insightful groundbreaking film about the state of race relations in America as seen through the eyes of eight North American men of Asian, European, Latino and African descent. In a series of intelligent, emotional and dramatic confrontations the men reveal the pain and scars that racism has caused them. What emerges is a deeper sense of understanding and trust. This is the dialogue most of us fear, but hope will happen sometime in our lifetime. (1995, 90 minutes)
The Color of Fear 2 Walking Each Other Home: This 55-minute sequel to The Color of Fear is about the remaining 23 hours that occurred on that incredible three-day weekend in Ukiah, California. The Color of Fear was an intense emotional confrontation about racism, whereas Walking Each Other Home explores in greater depth the intimate relationship that the eight men had with each other. In this new sequel, the European American men have added opportunities to express how they felt when the men of color were angry, why they were afraid, and what they discovered about themselves and each other as men of European descent. (1995, 55 minutes)
The Color of Fear 3 is an intimate conversation on the issues of what it is to be gay in this society and the impact it has on their sense of safety and identity. Through their personal stories and interactions, we have a glimpse into the fears, the stereotypes, and moral issues that are dividing and confronting us today. (1995, 90 minutes)
The Color of Fear: Film Guide The intention of the Film Guide for The Color of Fear is to give the viewer an opportunity to test his or her facilitation skills and to deepen the awareness of self in relation to the world. There are two discs in the package, the first is a series of questions, based on the film, to challenge viewers to reexamine their thinking (and possible assumptions) about the material they are viewing. The second disk is the film itself, divided up into segments so that viewers can watch the film and look specifically for the ways a conversation on racism can be derailed by discomfort, by anguish, by fear, by the contexts that we all bring into the room and how we can move through all of those sensations to continue the necessary conversation at hand. (1997, 64 minutes)
