Barry Jenkins, who directed MOONLIGHT, shared his 2003 short on Vimeo. Watch it here.
Here’s what he said about it on Vimeo:
My first short film, photography by James Laxton, as always. Still my favorite. Written shortly after 9/11, wasn’t actually made for another year because of the way things shook out in school. Inspired by three things: the marquee of a Tallahassee laundromat shortly after 9/11 reading “American Flags Cleaned Free,” an image in my head of two people sitting atop folding tables, and my housemate at the time being obsessed with Napoleon.
We were very young men when we made this film.
