What If? Recreating Iconic Film Posters With People of Color

BuzzFeed kills it with this video. They brought together some people of color to recreate classic movie posters. They even brought up the fact that LGBTQ+ people of color are incredibly underrepresented in media, something that so often goes overlooked.

They re-did the posters for TitanicThe Breakfast ClubBlue is the Warmest Color, and more. The facts presented in the video are quite fascinating as well. Personal favorite? The Breakfast Club recreation. Complete with quotes from the movie and everything! Well done.
