Barry Jenkins, Academy Award-winner for Moonlight, in a movie based on the book by James Baldwin, talks about the most painful topics: race, violence, and injustice. Set in Harlem in the 1970s, the story of a man accused of a crime he did not commit turns into an atmospheric melodrama.
Barry Jenkins was born in Miami and lives in San Francisco. Before making his feature-length debut, he worked at Banana Republic. His debut, Medicine for Melancholy, won prizes at festivals in Sarasota and San Francisco, as well as three Independent Spirit Awards. Jenkins's second film, Moonlight, has screened at festivals in Telluride, Toronto and New York.
