Revisiting 'Moonlight,' a movie made with persistence and kismet

Hosted by

When Barry Jenkins' film Moonlight premiered at Telluride in 2016, he had no idea how many people would connect with his drama about a gay, black boy growing up in a tough Miami neighborhood. Turns out, a lot of people have found something to relate to in the movie, and it's now a strong awards contender, picking up nominations from the guilds and a Golden Globes win. This holiday weekend, we revisit our conversation with Jenkins and producer Adele Romanski, who have been friends since college. They tell us how the film came to be, and why part of the script was written on a European jaunt to Brussels.
