Black people loving and losing is something we don’t see enough of. We’re always in these heightened situations like something big is happening, something funny or something violent. And you know what? Sometimes we die of breast cancer or a broken heart. Things happen that are just not being explored cinematically. It’s time we reinvigorated that type of film.
I love Ava. We need films about our humanity. Our day to day lives. The things that people think only happens in Whites’ lives. Films where our whole existence isn’t about escaping Whites or coddling Whites.
I’ll always stan for Ava’s resume!
