Personal Quote:

[on the cinematography of Moonlight] Cinema is a little over 100 years old, and a lot of what we do is built around film emulsion. Those things were calibrated for white skin. We've always put powder on skin to dull the light. But my memory of growing up in Miami is this moist, beautiful black skin. So we used oil. I wanted everyone's skin to have a sheen to reflect my memory. [2017] See more »

Trivia:

When he first got into film, his passion was for French and Asian New Wave cinema. He would always head straight for the Foreign Films section of his local Blockbuster and devour all he could afford. After he espied a photo of Quentin Tarantino on the VHS jacket for Chungking Express (1994) his curiosity was immediately piqued, and once he saw that movie he knew that he had to become a filmmaker.
