Scheduled to make its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month is the Ryan Coogler-directed indie drama Fruitvale, which stars Octavia Spencer, Michael B. Jordan, Tristan Wilds and Melonie Diaz.
Based the murder of 22-year old Oscar Grant (played by Jordan in the film) – Fruitvale is produced by Forest Whitaker.
In the video interview below, director Coogler talks the film, his motivations for making it, and the filmmaking process in general. I expect Tambay will be talking more in-depth with Ryan at Sundance.
And underneath the video, as well as above, you’ll some first-look still images from the film, featuring Octavia Spencer, Jordan, and Diaz.
