Part psychological horror, part realist drama, this exhilarating debut feature from Shatara Michelle Ford is set against the backdrop of national discussions around inequitable health care and policing, the #metoo movement and race in America. TEST PATTERN follows an interracial couple whose relationship is put to the test after a Black woman (DC-raised actress Brittany S. Hall, HBO's BALLERS) is sexually assaulted and her white boyfriend (Will Brill, NOT FADE AWAY, THE OA) must drive her from hospital to hospital in search of a rape kit. Their story reveals the systemic injustices and social conditioning women face when navigating sex and consent within the American patriarchy. Winner of top prizes at the BlackStar and New Orleans film festivals, this gripping social thriller offers a unique exploration of institutional racism and sexism from a Black female point of view. Winner, Lionsgate/STARZ Producer Award, 2020 BlackStar Film Festival; Winner, Jury Award, 2020 New Orleans Film Festival; Winner, Special Jury Award, 2020 DeadCenter Film Festival. Official Selection, 2020 Mill Valley, Atlanta, St. Louis, Virginia, Montclair, Milwaukee, Tacoma and Cucalorus film festivals.
