Producer and director, Marlene “Mo” Morris, is an award-winning documentary filmmaker whose media projects for nonprofits and educational organizations cover a wide range of socially conscious initiatives, including ecology, domestic abuse survivors and restorative justice. Living in Berkeley, California, she has been associate producer and editor on film projects with internationally acclaimed Bay Area filmmakers and an associate producer at Berkeley’s Center for Digital Storytelling. Years of social justice activism and professional experience as a mediator and immigration attorney enrich Mo’s approach to documentary filmmaking, resulting in a deeply personal and beautifully crafted film that seamlessly addresses such critical issues as gender equality, race and economic disparity—all through the voice of a 77-year-old African American artist and activist.
A New Color earned critical acclaim for dynamic and inspiring filmmaking, including Audience Favorite Special Mention, Best Short Documentary and CINE Golden Eagle finalist for independent and emerging media. A New Color is Mo’s first feature film.
