Watch Video Interview With Oscar Winner John Ridley (Is There or Isn’t There a Feud?)

Watch Video Interview With Oscar Winner John Ridley (Is There or Isn’t There a Feud?)

The Huffington Post just today came out with a video
interview with Oscar-winning screenwriter and director John Ridley taped at the
SXSW Festival.

Ridley is currently in Austin to both attend the U.S. premiere
of his Jimi Hendrix film with Andre Benjamin,
All is By My Side
, and also directing the pilot for his new TV series for ABC, American
Crime
.

He mainly talks about the Hendrix film and other things,
but yes, he does bring up the issue about that feud with Steve McQueen and whether
there is one or not. (And Ridley has had feuds before with other directors such
as David O. Russell and his film Three Kings).

So is there one or not?  You’ll have to watch and
find out for yourself.

I really wish "the story" wasn't about an alleged feud. I really could care less. Two deserving Black artists at the tip of their craft, took home Oscars. For a while I've felt disillusioned by The Academy's ignorance and outright omission of Black excellence in front of and behind the camera. So this topic is tangential to the real story here. IMHO.
