Gina Prince-Bythewood is one of my FAVORITE directors. On the latest edition of Cinema in Noir, my co-host Candice and I had the opportunity to chat with Gina about her series Shots Fired. At Cinema in Noir, we have been very vocal about how much we LOVE the limited edition series, so this was a treat.
During the conversation, Gina spoke about the decision to delve into television, re-teaming with her Love and Basketball star, Sanaa Lathan and what it was like filming in my hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. It was an insightful conversation. Although it will be bittersweet, I can not wait to see how the story concludes when the season finale of Shots Fired airs on May 24.
We kicked the show off with my review of the film Everything, Everything. Directed by Stella Meghie, the film stars Amandla Stenberg, Anika Noni Rose, and Nick Robinson. Based on the young adult novel by Nicola Yoon, the film is a coming of age love story about a girl forced into seclusion due to a rare illness and her desire to experience life.
We also chatted about the upcoming Wonder Woman film and the lack of promotion we have seen for the film.
