Barry Jenkins quotes

I love the American film industry and to see it this year, I feel, really reflect the world that we all live and work in, it gives me hope. It heartens me. There's a lot of work being done to make this year not be an anomaly.feedback

When you see that the HFPA comes back with six nominations you know they saw the work and the love put into the film. It fills my heart.feedback

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

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.feedback

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.feedback
