Red Island is a world premiere docudrama that explores racism in America through the lens of historical and current events such as John Punch, Jim Crow and Jussie Smollet.
Red Island is a sequel to A Blue Island in the Red Sea (2017), which explored racism in Chicago, and will employ a similar meta-realism, pulling from social media as a reflection of our culture of oppression, systemic racism.
Red Island is supported in part by:
