Focus Features brought writer/director Dee Rees on a PA tour through Dallas in November to promote her new film Pariah, the feature length adaptation of her 2007 semi-autobiographical short of the same name. Go,See,Talk got to sit down talk with Dee and discuss her honest and inspirational film. She is just a lovely human being and a talented filmmaker with a voice and style all her own. Have a look at what she had to say about her story, her passion and her first big break into feature length films. Enjoy!
From the sound of it, it seems we’ll be seeing a lot from Ms. Rees in the future. It’s certainly great to have someone of her enthusiasm and vision making their way in the film world. Needless to say we’re really looking forward to her future endeavors. Pariah is a fantastic and moving film and it’s possible you’ll hear her name and star Adepero Oduye come Oscar time. Pariah is now playing in limited release.
