Movies That Made Us is a season curated by the team behind Black Femme Film, a collective who work to create safe, positive spaces for young black women to enjoy cinema. Co-founder Monique Monrowe on Moonlight: "This film changed everything. It opened our eyes to stories we otherwise don't see in such a beautiful way. Even though the story is painful, it's speckled with true moments of warmth, humanity and love. Barry Jenkins set a new benchmark, and I'm so grateful that he's spearheded a new way to tell Black stories."
Three stages in the life of a young black man going from childhood to adulthood in the low-income neighbourhood of Miami's Liberty City are charted with empathy and honesty in the Best Picture-winning breakout feature from director Barry Jenkins.
