Rainbow Experiment

Things spiral out of control in a high school in Manhattan when a terrible accident involving a science experiment injures a kid for life. A who-dun-it with a how-they-saw-it leads to an explosion of emotions touching on everyone involved: the teachers, the parents, the school authorities and, ultimately, also the students. The Rainbow Experiment deals with the theme of forgiveness. The film shows the events of one day in a single location, where the stories of its 30+ speaking roles converge in a widescreen ensemble work with multilayered soundtracks and Kallas’ experimental use of split screens. see more at: https://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=6723#about_project           I am more than proud to be part of this amazing cast in a film by Christine Kallas the writer-director of “42 Seconds of Happiness “ (https://42secondsofhappiness.wordpress.com)- an...
