In 2007 Dee Rees (writer/director) and Nekisa Cooper(producer) made a short film entitled “Pariah” about a lesbian teenager juggling multiple identities to avoid rejection from her family and friends. “Pariah” seeks to personalize the struggles of gay/lesbian youth of color in such a way that evokes empathy, opens doors to communication, and promotes dialogue within families. The film has screened in over 40 film festivals around the world and won over 25 awards across the mainstream, LGBT and people of color festival spectrum. Some of the wins include Outfest, NewFest, Frameline and the Philly LGBT Fest as well as Urbanworld VIBE, etc. Join us as we discuss the new journey that “Pariah” is taking with The Netflix Find Your Voice Film Competition.
