See excerpts of the interview below:
On Black creatives:
“I want to see more Black actors and crew members well-represented in big films and not just the ones that specifically tell a black story to a black audience.”
On her award-winning documentary, Skin:
“I had to create a documentary to raise awareness of the negative effects of colourism. I needed the powerful message of self-love and self-confidence to travel much farther.”
“Self-love is empowering and liberating because it allows you to own who you are wholeheartedly and unapologetically.”
On leaving a legacy:
“Legacy means power that comes from being aware and confident in who you are.”
