This post is a couple of days late, but with so much going on in the world right now…I just needed a break.
In light of the much needed spotlight exposing the ugly truth of America for the world to see–once again, but on a much more in-your-face, accessible to everyone type of way–I’ve decided I want to use my platform to highlight works by and about people of color–especially black people–much more. The narrative has to change and these stories need to be hear/seen more! We all experience the same things…love, hurt, rejection, happiness, loneliness, etc…just some of our stories are a little more nuanced.
So get ready! And if there are any films or filmmakers that you think I should spotlight, the figurative “suggestion box” is open, just drop a line in the comments below.
But for now, he’s what I watched last month.
The majority of the works were for articles/Top 10 lists I did over at AwardsCircuit and a lot were a shorts that were a part of the SXSW 2020 Amazon collab. I watched some really cool works from some up-and-coming directors from around the world as well as some classics I finally got around to watching. I also binged “Normal People” on Hulu–which I absolutely loved and related to–after reading the book a few months ago. I too am now obsessed with Connell’s chain LoL. I also binged “The Great” for AwardsCircuit…it was great…be sure to give that review a read.
