Fall in Love with Nikyatu and Suicide by Sunlight

I am officially fangirling over the awesomeness of indie filmmaker Nikyatu Jusu. If you're not following her on Twitter then you're missing out on a constant stream of artistic gems, quotes, insight and pointers that paint a realistic picture of what it's like to be a black woman indie filmmaker in today's creative climate. 

Suicide By Sunlight is a tale about "black vampires protected by melanin day-walkers among us." That short tagline alone is enough to excite me about the future of black cinema. The sci-fi & fantasy geek in me can't wait to see this film (that played at Sundance and other film festivals).

I've been an admirer of Nikyatu's talent since her break-out short film Black Swan Theory (that Shadow & Act introduced many of us to). She stepped onto the film scene boldly, each new work daring and visually engaging. A reminder of how her artistic voice is very much needed in the realm of Hollywood. 

Below is a "Meet The Filmmaker" type video via the Sundance Institute. 

Do yourself a favor-- board the Nikyatu train... Her filmmaking career is destined for greatness.
