Introduction from Brandon David Wilson via Zoom.

(Dir. Victoria Mahoney, starring Zoe Kravitz, Tim Blake Nelson, Sonequa Martin-Green, Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, Jason Clarke, Antonique Smith, Gabourey Sidibe, 2011)

By the time this film was released, the “‘Hood Film” was past its prime, but in the 1990s, this sub-genre reigned. For her feature directorial debut Victoria Mahoney returned to this style of film but made it her own. Utilizing a combination of handheld camerawork and fluid long takes, Mahoney borrows the syntax of ‘Hood films to tell the story of Sweetness O’Hara, a mixed race girl from a troubled family who is drifting into the nihilism of the streets when her home fails to give her the love and security she craves. ~Brandon David Wilson
