DLCL Winter Film Series Screening: Moonlight (2016) Barry Jenkins
Barry Jenkins’ 2016 film won Best Picture for its heart-wrenching portrayal of the coming of age story of a young gay black man named Chiron and his resilient endurance of repeated physical and emotional abuse. Jenkins’ film beautifully depicts Chiron’s difficult lifelong relationships with drugs, violence, and childhood relationships and will be remembered as a groundbreaking testament to the lives so often ignored by cinema.
Discussion will focus on analyzing the relationships between gender and sexuality, love and friendship, body and performance. We will also address the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, and class as well as the different ways that film has represented sexuality across cultures, schools of cinema, film technologies, and history.
These screenings are part of the DLCL Film Series DLCL 152A/354A, which undergraduates and undergraduates can take for one unit C/NC. All screenings are free and open to the public and audience members are encouraged to participate in the discussions following the films.
