See excerpts of the interview below:
On Black creatives:
I want to see more Black actors and crew members well-represented in big films and not just the ones that specifically tell a black story to a black audience.
On her award-winning documentary, Skin:
I had to create a documentary to raise awareness of the negative effects of colourism. I needed the powerful message of self-love and self-confidence to travel much farther.
Self-love is empowering and liberating because it allows you to own who you are wholeheartedly and unapologetically.
On leaving a legacy:
Legacy means power that comes from being aware and confident in who you are.
