Moonlight directed by Barry Jenkins.

Cinematographer: James Laxton.

Cinematographer James Laxton creates images that are bold, rich in colour with high contrast lighting and intense harsh reality. By moving away from the documentary, realistic look of American indies Jenkins and Laxton use colour, lighting, and camera movement to immerse us into this dreamlike personal world that leaves us wrecked.

Moonlight’s use of colour is effortless and aids in giving us a film that is powerful, a tour de force in filmmaking that captures a journey about masculinity, identity, and sexuality in such a beautiful way.
