Brunch with Dee Rees and Nekisa Cooper (Brunch with Bridget, Episode 66)

This week Bridget welcomes to Brunch the two women who brought us the award-winning short film Pariah: director Dee Rees and producer Nekisa Cooper.

Dee and Nekisa talk about the making of Pariah, and their new documentary Eventual Salvation, which will air on the Sundance Channel in October and will screen at Brooklyn Academy of Music as a part of their Cinematek Program during the Afropunk Film Festival.

In addition to their exciting cinematic lives, the real-life couple also talk about how they met and are challenged by Bridget to a game of "How Well Do You Know Your Lesbian?&quot The results are shocking!

Don’t forget to vote for Pariah in the Netflix "Find Your Voice" Film Competition. If Pariah wins, Rees will receive a $150,000 cash grant, production resources, and the film will be distributed on Netflix. (The film is currently in second place, so vote today!)
