*Online Premiere* Log line: A woman on the run goes to a 24 hour barbershop to get a midnight makeover and befriends a young barber's apprentice. Our take: “In Color,” directed by José Andrés Cardona, is an ode to unexpected connections and breaking free, oddly comedic in a way, yet emotionally resonant as a story of damage merging with innocence. Jimmy is relegated to sweeping up hair, always being put in his place by the man in charge, Jay. When a mysterious woman arrives to the shop, bruised and bloodied, requesting a Marilyn Monroe haircut, neither knows how to react. But Jimmy sees it as an opportunity to prove himself and insists he’ll take the job, which results in a strange connection, especially after the reason she’s on the run reveals itself. The final film in the “Six Short Films” collective — made up of Cardona, Hunt Beaty and Wesley Wingo — it’s a fitting send-off to the two year project, somehow both unexpected and perfectly in line with the tone and outsider POV’s of each of the previous films. Of the six, we’ve featured the last four, “Sundays,” “F*ck Bunny,” “Pay Pig,”; with “In Color,” there’s a timeless mix of influences: the classic 50’s Americana barber shop setting and background music flows into a rousing final sequence blasting 80’s inflected synth pop — it’s triumphant and yet, an unsure future looms large.
