Qasim Basir's A Boy. A Girl. A Dream is simply one of my absolute favorite films at Sundance 2018. It will undoubtedly be characterized by some as "that one shot film" -- and the technical audacity of the film is indeed inspiring -- but it's so much more than that. Anchored by nuanced, natural, absolutely beautiful lead performances by Omari Hardwick and Meagan Good, the film is a gathering place for all of those who feel thrown off balance by the cultural moment we find ourselves in. It's a true communal experience seeing this film, and I was so happy to be able to speak with writer/director Qasim Basir, writer Samantha Tanner, and producer Datari Turner about the resonances it's been finding here in Park City.
