Color and black & white imageries aesthetically collide in this visually imaginative short, dramatic narrative shot in first person perspective. “In The Gray” follows Kasey Reynolds, a 21-year-old, African American, non-binary college student with career pursuits in the field of geo-engineering and climate activism. The story takes place over the course of a day, tracking the complications that Kasey’s genderless identity places on their personal and professional life. Kasey struggles to be seen and heard in a blind, tone-deaf society with fixed ideals of gender identification.
