I got a chance to catch up with Matthew Cherry, director of the Oscar Nominated Best Animated Short film, Hair Love at the African American Film Critic Association Awards where he was award Breakthrough Director. I also spoke to Producer Karen Rupert Toliver and Directors Everett Downing jr and Bruce W. Smith.
I’m going to post the interviews but nothing can say it better than the actual film. This Film is SO IMPORTANT, SO FANTASTIC and SO TOUCHING. This should be seen by all and I hope it inspires, encourages and breaks down barriers. A towering achievement for such a short film. It connects personally, culturally and universally. MUCH LOVE to HAIR LOVE
