I was beyond excited to interview Gina Prince-Bythewood the director/writer of Beyond the Lights which is out on DVD and available on itunes now.
This film starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw–who plays a biracial pop superstar–is now one of my favorite films of all time. I saw it in the theatre on its opening weekend and remember asking my husband if he would be willing to sit through the next screening too. It was that good!
Gina has had an incredible TV and film career that has included Love & Basketball (writer/director) (and another personal favorite), Secret Life of Bees (director), as well as A Different World and South Central.
See this movie NOW! And listen to what Gina has to say about why she wrote it!
