Life’s Differences And Similarities Are Front In Center In “Driving While Black”

Rating: 3/5
Review by Richard Caldwell

Life in the modern world can easily become complicated. Individuals walk amongst the planer constantly comparing their differences and similarities. This can result in a feeling of insanity being felt by many. Our differences are what make us unique, but also misunderstood by one another. “Driving While Black” attempts to explain those differences and similarities.

Dimitri is a young African American man. Since childhood, he has had his share of run-in’s with law enforcement. Those experiences have led to Dimitri not trusting many members of law enforcement. His job as a pizza delivery driver tests his trust and faith daily. As the film progresses, Dimitri attempts to better his life while avoiding the obstacles of law enforcement in his life.

Overall I enjoyed this film. I thought it told Dimitri’s story well. Dominique Purdy did a good job of bringing his vision to the film screen. I think audiences will enjoy this film. The funny moments are definitely apart of the film, but I think the meaning behind the story is what is truly important. Hopefully audiences will feel the same way after watching this polarizing tale.
