Based on Tarell Alvin McCraney’s play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue and on his own experiences, Barry Jenkins sketches a poetic narrative with deep understanding of the pain and challenges that growing up in a poor black district of Miami involves. This second film by Jenkins, who already proved his cinematographic vision and unique voice in the film landscape with Medicine for Melancholy (2008), is pioneering in its tender portrayal of black masculinity. Winner Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Picture, winner Warsteiner Audience Award IFFR 2017.
