Tayarisha Poe — I Direct Movies

Tayarisha Poe is the director of Selah And The Spades (on Amazon) which is a brilliant film about cliques in a private school and the badass Black girl who runs the whole social ecosystem. When you see it you know you’re looking at the debut film of a director who’s going to be making interesting and important films for a while. I wanted to talk to Tayarisha about how to make films, how she developed as a filmmaker, and what she thinks about modern film in general.
