ScreenTalks Archive / Kasi Lemmons on Eve's Bayou


Kasi Lemmons began her career playing supporting roles such as Jodie Foster’s roommate in 'Silence Of The Lambs' and Nicolas Cage’s victim in 'Vampire’s Kiss'. Frustrated by the limited opportunities available for black actresses in Hollywood, she started to write, using time between auditions to pen short stories and scenes for friends to perform in acting classes. In the latest from our ScreenTalks Archive, Lemmons discusses her debut film - Eve’s Bayou, widely viewed as a classic of contemporary black cinema, and cited as an influence on films like 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' and Beyonce’s visual album 'Lemonade'.
