Dr. Karla Rae Fuller's Do the Right Thing: Five Screenplays that Embrace Diversity
Dr. Fuller will read sections from her latest book on screenwriting strategies that focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Five films will be highlighted: Moonlight, Get Out, Mudbound, Roma, and Always Be My Maybe. Screenwriting and script development can be most useful in the analysis of racism, inequity, and inclusion in all media. These five case studies of commercially successful and award-winning screenplays resist stereotypes and present multi-dimensional depictions of historically underrepresented groups, such as LGBTQ+, African American, Latino, and Asian American. There will be video clips and audience Q&A throughout the event. Filmmakers and screenwriters will leave further inspired to embrace their own unique voices.
