Join Oscar-winner Barry Jenkins for an in-depth conversation about his filmmaking approach and the process of bringing the writing of James Baldwin to the screen in his latest feature, If Beale Street Could Talk (featured in our Main Slate). His much-anticipated follow-up to Moonlight, Beale Street is a visually poetic adaptation of Baldwin’s Harlem-set 1974 novel.
