But until were actually allowed to write our own stories, and have equity, meaning have ownership in content, and ownership in its distribution, I am not impress. And so, I would say, yeah, there has been a little bit of a shift. But, Hollywood gets antiquated real talk, Hollywood sees this as destined for one thing: urban distribution, because theres Black lead, me and Regina Hall, Malco say about Tijuana Jackson: Purpose Over Prison. The movie, written and directed by and starring Malco, centers on an ex-convict with aspirations of becoming a motivational speaker, was released by Crank Up Films in July. The tide is changing. Avenues are changing. And that is why I am saying to people, especially with independent film, if youre independent filmmaker and you have a story to tell, authentic depiction of minorities, and you believe you can tell it better than anybody else, I believe this is your opportunity to get this story out there, he say. Hollywood is making an attempt to make that adjustment, but weve get long way to go. Check out other IndieWire Live videos here.
