A thought provoking discussion about the politics of the movie industry, the state of #unagreatmovie, art, risks, and money.
“In the midst of my initial annoyance with this film, I started to see myself in terms of questions… The most phenomenal thing about this film is that Sharp doesn’t “direct” you to think or feel anything at all. Imagine that. The audience is like a fly on the wall (a literal reference in the film) seeing this play out. Realistic people in real situations that everyone has experienced at some point in their lives. You are challenged to not only draw your own conclusions, but also question your reasons for doing so. Una Great Movie is a film that you see because you are ready for that deeper element that has been missing in the film industry… definitely one of the best of its kind for all time.”
On this episode, filmmaker Jennifer Sharp joins host Jason Godbey in the Rabbit Hole Studio and talks about her feature film Una Great Movie.
After being selected as the opening night film at the 2019 Cineodessy Film Festival, “Una Great Movie” was awarded the highest honor of the festival – Best Film!
This award is given out to the filmmaker who has gone beyond the traditional narrative to create and tell stories that engage, educate, inspire and challenge the way we think about ourselves, our environment and our narrative. Both of your films have changed the way we look at filmmaking and has deconstructed so many narratives allowing audiences to think differently about the way the see films and see people of color in films.
Watch Jennifer discuss festivals, the state of black films, and getting movies made with other filmmakers and Lisa Simmons, the director of the Roxbury Film Festival.
