Colorz of Rage[edit]

His debut was directing the film Colorz of Rage in 1999.[1] The independent urban drama features Debbie (Nicki Richards) and Tony Mespelli (Dale Resteghini) trying to make it in New York City despite great adversity. It also features hip-hop star Redman and R&B singer Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley. Uphill battle faces a mixed-race couple from Boston trying to make it in the big city, with Debbie (Nicki Richards), a black woman who wants to be a singer and Tony (Dale Resteghini), a white young man, who is a struggling actor, both in their early twenties. Although they both believe that race should not be an issue if two people love and respect one another, they are confronted with Debbie's family strongly disapproving the inter-racial affair. To make matters worse, Tony becomes the target of a radical Black Nationalist group who believes inter-racial relationships are a slap in the face to African-American culture. As Tony lands in jail, Debbie meets a good looking black man and finds herself wondering if her relationship with Tony is worth all the trouble.[2]
