More about HONKY
When a black sneaker company hires a white CEO, their commercials begin glorifying the “ghetto" and sales triple among white teens. But when violence erupts in a black community, the shoe designer blames the ads and promises revenge. Meanwhile, the writer of the ads is paralyzed by white guilt – which only gets worse when his therapist turns out not to be what he expected. Luckily, there’s a new racism pill on the market advertising, "If you don't think you need it, you're probably a racist!" HONKY takes a comedic look at the symbiotic relationship between racism and commercialism. 

Written by Greg Kalleres. Directed by Luke Harlan. 
Starring Scott Barrow, Philip Callen, Dave Droxler, Danielle Faitelson, Anthony Gaskins, Chris Myers, Reynaldo Piniella and Arie Bianca Thompson
