New York Times:
The coming-of-age drama “Moonlight” is nominated for eight Academy Awards. It tells the story of a gay African-American boy growing up in the impoverished Liberty City neighborhood of Miami.
Here’s what else you need to know about the movie as it continues through awards season.
• Here’s The New York Times review, in which A. O. Scott asked if it was the best film of the year. (His answer was yes.)
• Here’s an interview with the film’s director, Barry Jenkins, and the playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney, whose work was adapted into the film. Both men are from Liberty City.
• Here’s a closer look at one of the film’s stars, Mahershala Ali.
This free event is made possible by the generous support of the d10 Pride Committee, the San Francisco Arts Commission, Grants for the Arts, The San Francisco Foundation and Supervisor Malia Cohen’s Office.
