Last quote by Barry Jenkins

You don't assume a boy who grew up how and where we did would grow up and make a piece of art that wins an Academy Award. I placed those limitations on myself. I denied myself that dream. Not you, not anyone else – me.

Barry Jenkins quotes

When I made this film, I thought five people would watch it.

No matter who wins the election, I think my duty as an American filmmaker will be to give voice to whatever shift in the climate takes place as a result of that election.

I think our story, for its specificity of character and place, is giving voice to a world and a certain kind of person that normally is unheard.

There is a candidate running for president right now who probably doesn't know anybody like the people he disparages quite often.

When I read Tarell's (McCraney) piece it grabbed me in such a way that I thought it would be cowardly to not make it. To be moved, so moved by something, and as someone who's a visual storyteller, to not create… at least attempt to create a story out of it would have been, I think, a cowardly act. So, again, I'm happy that the movie is getting the attention it is but at first it was about doing justice to the characters.
