  3. 3. Director’s Note 3 BLACK CARD | a PETE CHATMON picture Membership Has Its Challenges WHO ARE YOU? Three words that perhaps form the biggest question we face as individuals and one posed in film since the medium began. “Black Card” continues in this tradition, asking to whom must one be loyal and at what price? Should we lose individuality for the sake of community … is the happiness of our loved ones more important than our own? Through a delicate mixture of comedy, satire, and ultimately drama, “Black Card” captures the journey of one couple trying to answer the above questions. The universality of this issue shines through the specifics of their story, creating a reflection on what we all experience. - Pete Chatmon, January 2015
