Elijah Boothe, best known for his work on Marvel’s Luke Cage as young Cottonmouth, is starring in and producing upcoming film Pink Opaque.
The film, directed by Derrick Perry, focuses on Travis Wolfe (Boothe), a film student who finally comes to terms with his father’s suicide through his uncle, a down-on-his-luck television producer. The film premiered at the Pan African Film Festival and has won awards from the San Diego Black Film Festival. Boothe himself won an award for Best Actor thanks to his role.
According to the official description:
Travis Wolfe lives in a world all his own. He’s roaming the streets of Hollywood, struggling to finish his thesis documentary project for film school before he can graduate and start the next phase of life. After reconnecting with his estranged uncle Robin, a veteran television producer on the wrong side of his career, Travis attempts to unravel the mystery of his father’s suicide. A glimmer of hope is offered through his relationship with Kristen, a streetwise girl from Koreatown with big dreams of her own. As tensions begin to brew with her protective older brother Bobby and family secrets put his newly established connection with Robin to the test, Travis struggles to hold it all together long enough to figure out his future, as well as his past.
The film is expected to come to digital later in 2020. Watch a trailer below:
