Award-winning playwright and Colorado College professor Idris Goodwin, in collaboration with director  J. Cody Spellman, has produced a short film based on his 2015 play #Matter.

Starring Kimberly Vaughn and Ryan Hake, the film examines the cultural conflict between the phrases "black lives matter" and "all lives matter," presenting an intimate conversation between two not-quite friends about an argument they shared on social media, and about the different ways they see the world.
#Matter
was filmed entirely on an iPhone to emphasize the importance technology has played in the Black Lives Matter movement.
