Blue Caprice, directed by Alexandre Moors‘(Cruel Summer, Lady Lovelace Deception System) follows the events surrounding the DC Sniper attacks back in 2002. It was a very dark time in America considering barely a year had passed since 9/11. The film stars Isaiah Washington as John Allen Muhammad and Tequan Richmond as Lee Boyd Malvo. I don’t know if whether any light needed to be shined on such a tragic event, but as an artist I have to resign myself to a story, that perhaps, must be told.

Also starring Joey Lauren Adams and Tim Blake Nelson, Blue Caprice will open in select theaters on September 13th and will be available on demand and digital download September 17th.

Inspired by true events, BLUE CAPRICE investigates the notorious and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two perpetrators, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America. Marked by captivating performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond, lyrical camerawork, and a unique and bold structure, BLUE CAPRICE documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence. BLUE CAPRICE paints a riveting portrait of 21st-century America and a haunting depiction of two cold-blooded killers that endures long after the lights come up.
