Speaker Series: Director Rashaad Ernesto Green
Our Speaker Series continues with Award-Winning director, producer and Bronx native, Rashaad Ernesto Green. While Rashaad is currently wrapping up promotion for his recent film, Premature, he has a long list of credits making it likely you’ve seen some of his work. Think Gun Hill Road, Being Mary Jane, Luke Cage…like we said, more likely than not, you’ve seen his work.
New York native Rashaad Ernesto Green’s first feature, Gun Hill Road, premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and received nationwide distribution. In his work, Rashaad encourages people to have an active emotional experience by telling stories that are deeply rooted within the universal human experience. His films have screened on Netflix, on HBO, and at festivals internationally. He’s been supported by Cinereach, Sundance Institute, Tribeca Film Institute, IFP, HBO, NBC, Time Warner, and Warner Bros.
Our discussion will center around the art and business of directing in Hollywood, East Coast vs West Coast and the art of social justice, among other topics. Bring your questions, and be ready for a great conversation this May.
