BFI Film Festival highlights: Moonlight Trailer

BFI Film Festival highlights: Moonlight Trailer by Barry Jenkins

A tale of self-discovery and self-acceptance, Moonlight follows life of a young black man growing up in the rough neighborhood of Miami. The topic of LGBT people of color rarely makes film plots, this is why Barry Jenkins‘ work is so relevant. Based on the play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue by Tarell Alvin McCraney, the film is divided into three separate chapters – each reflecting upon a different life stage.
