Blurring the Color Line, which explores the experiences of Asian Americans in the Jim Crow era South, is inspired by Crystal Kwok’s grandmother’s family grocery store in segregated Augusta, Georgia. Her family grew up in a predominantly Black neighborhood in the South during the Jim Crow era, and the film documents their stories about their personal experiences that expose the problematic, racialized society.

The film de-centers existing narratives, instead showcasing perspectives from both the Chinese and Black communities and opening up uncomfortable but necessary discussions between marginalized groups.
