Pariah

Dir. Dee Rees
With Adepero Oduye, Kim Wayans, Aasha Davis
2011, 86min, DCP

 

The breakout feature from Mudbound director Dee Rees features a bracing performance from Adepero Oduye as Alike, a seventeen-year-old lesbian growing up in Fort Greene who experiences both first love and family rejection as she tests the waters of her sexuality. Shot in beautifully textured images by Bradford Young, Pariah is “a uniquely pop-culture savvy, sex-positive queer womanist vision, where Audre Lorde quotes and Khia songs played in strip clubs sit comfortably next to one another” (Grace Barber-Plentie, BFI).

 
To Be Free

Dir. Adepero Oduye
