Alex Ross Perry’s The Color Wheel is described by the director as an “objectional comedy about disappointment and forgiveness.” His second feature follows the road trip of semi-estranged siblings JR (comedienne Carlen Altman) and Colin (Perry himself) and their encounters with ex-lovers, former classmates, and old crushes along the way.
The Color Wheel was included on Film Comment’s list of the best unreleased films of 2011. It’s also been chosen by IndieWire and The Village Voice as the best film of the year without a distributor.
And who doesn’t love a grainy black and white film?
For a limited-time only the film will be shown at BAMrose cinemas in Brooklyn. If you are in New York, head to the Friday showings for the opportunity to meet Alex Ross Perry and Carlen Altman!
