Birmingham LGBT History Festival: Moonlight 15

Nominated for 8 Academy Awards, Moonlight is a timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man (played by Ashton Sanders) from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami.

At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, Moonlight is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Barry Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.
