    By Greg Kalleres
    Directed by Mikell Pinkney

    A black teenager is shot for his “Sky Max” shoes. Sales triple among white teens.  Are ghetto-glorifying commercials to blame or the CEO that only sees dollar signs?  Either way, a new cure for racism promises to solve everything and advertises, “If you don’t think you need it, you’re probably a racist!” Honky is a darkly comedic look at five people, white and black, as they navigate the murky waters of advertising, race, romance and basketball shoes.

    “Hilarious, irreverent, keeps you laughing from start to finish” –The New York Times
