A little-known film is coming to the big screen that borrows heavily from some of the best works of cinema’s greatest masterpieces.
Diego Rivera’s ‘The Colour Purple’ is about a group of misfit children who are swept into the world of art, but with a twist: They’re part of a cult that worships a black and white-clad man with a heart of gold.
Rivera, a director best known for ‘Diego,” the 2009 comedy about a teen who lives in a commune in New Jersey and works as a janitor, has also been a writer for movies like ‘The Shining,’ ‘A Clockwork Orange,’ and ‘The Prestige.’
In the film, the group’s only friend is a black woman who lives with them, and she’s portrayed with such talent that it’s hard to imagine a film with a cast this young ever being made.
The film’s director, filmmaker Juan Francisco Lobo, told Newsweek he has been inspired by many of his peers, including David Lynch, Michael Powell, John Landis, and Roger Ebert.
The color of Rivera and his characters’ skin tones, he says, “are a sort of metaphor for what I believe art should be.”
For the past few years, Rivera has been working on his first feature, which he says will be a story of a family who’s stuck in a perpetual state of adolescence.
The film is expected to hit theaters in 2018, with a theatrical release coming next year.”
I think I’m a really talented artist.
He points to a painting in his art gallery that’s been sitting on his desk for more than a decade, showing off a young man who looks like Rivera himself, who was born in Mexico in 1952. “
I’ve always been drawn to films that have been inspired in a way that I never could have imagined, because I have never seen them before.”

It’s a drawing of a young girl who looks at the painting and smiles.
“What a coincidence that this is in the same painting as this painting,” he says.
Riveras film, ‘Diegos’ was written and directed by Diego Rivera, who died in 2012.
He’s credited as a writer on several of the film’s most iconic images, including the black-and-white painting ‘The Paintings,’ which has become one of the most recognizable images in the world.
Rivere’s film centers on a group that has been drawn together by a single figure—a painting, that is.
The artist is the only one who can see what the others see, but that’s not what happens.
Riveralas son, Juan Francisco, who is working on a script for the film and the story, says he’s not a fan of art as an object of desire.
He sees art as a process of expression, but not one that will necessarily result in anything.
“Art should be a gift to us, and we should be able to express ourselves, but if you don’t do that, then you’ll never be happy,” he explained.
Riveranas work is an exploration of the human condition, as well as a story about what it means to be a human being.
The project also comes with a warning about racism and sexism.
“This film has a lot of black characters, and it’s about a lot black people.
It shows a lot about race,” Rivera told Newsweek.
“It also shows a very black heart and soul.”
Rivera’s work is not limited to painting, but he has an affinity for the visual arts, too.
He credits his father for teaching him how to draw and painting, as he recalls seeing a mural of his father while he was growing up.
He says that’s what led him to take an interest in art.
“That’s how I started, painting,” Rivera said.
“The Color of the River” is a film that’s being produced by the Rivera-Rivera Production Company, a company of Riveras own artwork.
It will feature a cast of diverse actors, including Laura Jane Grace, Ben Foster, and Maya Rudolph.
Riveres film is set in an alternate world in which art is no longer a commodity, but rather an integral part of our lives.
