Until ‘Moonlight,’ I had never seen one black man cook for another on screen. But I wanted the characters to be free of ‘groundbreaking’ or ‘never before.’ We were ascribed those things. They weren’t the point.

You graduate from film school and move to Hollywood. Hollywood tells you, ‘We’re not the place for you to make films,’ so you decide you have to make a film yourself.

I think everybody can identify, you know, with this sort of struggle to decide for yourself who you are, you know, and what your place in life is.

As a filmmaker whose first film was made with the DIY tools of digital cinema, I love how the democratization of the filmmaking process and platforms like YouTube enables people to tell stories that in previous generations simply could not be told.

There’s nothing in Hollywood that’s inherently detrimental to good art. I think that’s a fallacy that we’ve created because we frame the work that way too overtly. ‘This is Hollywood.’ ‘This isn’t Hollywood.’ It’s like, ‘No, this is actually all Hollywood.’ People are just framing them differently.
