“A Thousand And One” had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize and is now being released this weekend in theaters from Focus Features. Writer and director A.V. Rockwell, making her feature directorial debut, was kind enough to spend some time talking with us about the story, the central performance from Teyana Taylor, her thoughts on the current cinematic landscape for Black storytellers, and more. Please take a listen below and be sure to check out the film this weekend. Thank you, and enjoy!
