Moonlight, 2016 film written and directed by Barry Jenkins. Barry Jenkins was born in Miami, Florida, and attended Florida State University film school. He is a writer and director, known for his first Academy Award winning film Moonlight (2016), Medicine for Melancholy (2008) and My Josephine (2003). A big fan of foreign films, when Jenkins first got into film, his passion was for French and Asian New Wave cinema. After he espied a photo of Quentin Tarantino on the VHS jacket for Chungking Express (1994) his curiosity was immediately piqued, and once he saw that movie he knew that he had to become a filmmaker.
