Moonlight Memories

I was lucky enough to attend the opening of Moonlight last October at the New York Film Festival. I remember reading the description of the film and thinking, “A movie about being black and gay? Sounds interesting.” And of course I was happy we bought the tickets because it turned out to be amazing.

I never posted the photos because I took them with my phone, which does a lousy job in low light. But in honor of Moonlight’s Oscar win, I thought I would celebrate by sharing them.

Congrats Barry Jenkins, Mahershala Ali, and the rest of the creators, cast and crew!

Carol

Todd Haynes, director, bottom right, and Christine Vachon, in a q&a about their film Carol at the Paris Theater.  Afterward, they went outside and snapped a photo of the marquee, right. I love how even totally amazing and accomplished filmmakers don’t take the wonder of their accomplishments (as evidenced by the beautifully understated, class Paris marquee) for granted.
