HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from William Carey University.

Keone Fuqua, a William Carey University theatre professor, will appear on the silver screen in the upcoming Christian film “Yellow Day.”

The film, directed by Carl Lauten, follows a young man’s journey through the Yellow Day, a “miraculous day where the world is revealed as seen through the eyes of God,” according to a review in The Christian Post. The film was produced in Mobile, Alabama, and uses both live action and high-quality animation to reveal how God’s grace changes lives.

Fuqua, chair of Carey’s Department of Theatre and Communication since August 2015, portrays the janitor, Joseph, in the film. Without revealing the plot of the film, Fuqua said his character is “used to help a couple come together … he is used by God in an indirect way in the film.” His involvement with the film started through a friendship with G.P. Galle Jr., the film’s writer.

“I was inspired by his desire to make a movie without compromising his faith,” said Fuqua.

In addition to his character role, Fuqua also did early pre-production work on the film. Fuqua, formerly the director of film and theatre at the University of Mobile, has portrayed characters in a number of films, including “The Perfect Weapon,” an upcoming sci-fi film starring Steven Seagal. Other films in Fuqua’s portfolio include “Night Claws” and “The Dragon Warrior.”

“Yellow Day” opened on Christmas Day in Mobile but will expand to 80 additional theaters on January 8, including The Grand Theatre on Grand Drive in Hattiesburg.
