Moonlight, recently awarded Best Picture, Best Writing-Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali at the 2017 Academy Awards, is the complex and timely developmental narrative of Chiron, an African-American man living in Miami. Beginning with his childhood, we join Chiron as he traverses through to adulthood, experiencing relationships, moments of discovery, joy and suffering. Beyond the stunningly stark cinematography and beautiful performances, this film brings a new voice to silenced stories, challenges stereotypes of race, gender and sexuality, explores the intricate and difficult process of individuation, and reminds us all of the need for human connection.
