“Tinted Lens illustrates the black experience through varying perspectives and allows others a glimpse into our realities. A journey of self discovery, this documentary prompts the conversations necessary for growth and healing.” -Brittany Hogan

Entrepreneur and amateur documentary filmmaker, Brittany Hogan, owner of Britt Brand, interviewed friends, folks from her church, and people of interest found through facebook to capture perspectives of the Black experience. The resulting documentary “offers a glimpse into our realities while making a few personal discoveries along the way.” The film, and facilitated conversation, ask if it is possible to have future experiences that are not “tinted” by the trauma of past experiences of racism.

Brittany created an accompanying line of products about the Black experience “that speaks to your life and opens up your mind.”
