  •  Richard Fung’s Out of the Blue about a young black man arrested by Toronto police in a case of “mistaken identity,” sets all kind of undercurrents in play. It’s at once a glimpse of the complex class relations in black communities, a critique of media responses to the case, and a very perceptive portrait.  As deft as the situation requires, Fung manages moments of political alignment between Asian artist and black subject, something rarely attempted in the imaginary community known as people of colour.
