Look closely and you can see all the little bits and pieces, and all the gaps in-between.” Mr Madila or The Colour of Nothing documents a series of conversations between the film-maker and a gifted spiritual healer, exploring the inner mind, the fabric of the universe, and the nature of reality itself, through the sacred art of animation.

This film is to remind us to stand united and continue to strive for a better, more connected world where all are respected as equals. We might think or look differently but in the end we are all human beings. We hope this piece conjures up some inspiration to act with strength and compassion in all of our daily interactions. Let us stand together. Director and Composer - Michael Marantz Director of Photography - Tim Sessler Producers - Jake Paque and Tay McEvers Executive Producers - Noah Meisner and Michael Marantz Edit - Nicholas Davis Additional Edit by - Kim Pellnat Produced by Already Alive Spoken Word Written and Performed by - KAMAU This is not the dream. Divided and confused. We dreamt a dream dwindling, descending to where dreams die. Somewhere between doubt and its defense Lies a field of broken aspirations A sea of not seeing because seeing is believing And if we dare to truly believe, then we must commit. Wake up! We dreamt a dream a dream dwindling, an ember in the winter breeze, Simmering, Our precious fleeting freedom the present I, Present Now is not the time to wallow in the trenches of despair I said, wake up, wake up! Our presence defies hatred We must engage, we must build and protect self tenaciously, Regardless of its casing, regardless of its color of its gender, of its belief We must protect we are soft but not weak, We grow, learn, adapt, live Like grass through concrete, And Conquer Every fear of difference with study, understanding, and gratitude for The very breath that gives to any, gave to every Breath is Breath, and of Breath Love is… Good Morning. I said Good Morning! Our work has just begun.
