Dee Rees

They say if you want to tell a good story, you have to write about what you know. This is exactly what Dee Rees did and it’s paid off big time. At a time when many Indie films never receive the attention of they deserve, Rees’ film went from senior project to feature film. That’s how good “Pariah” is. Her film has received plenty of rave reviews. We’re honoring her not only for her personal accomplishment but also for the doors she’s opening for other black directors.
