Based on first-time director Justin Simien's own experiences, Dear White People is a satirical look at what it's like to be black on a predominantly white college campus:

The plot centers on "four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular 'African American'-themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in 'post-racial' America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world."

The indie project is just 31 days and $25,000 from the big screen.
