In Clayton Perry's Q&A -- "Dee Rees: The Young, Black & Gifted Brainchild Behind The Movie PARIAH -- in, the writer/director of PARIAH opens up about the ins and out of making her celebrated feature. At one point, she talks about the special lessons she got from her executive producer (and mentor) Spike Lee:

Spike taught me that, as a director, you have to put everything on the screen. You can't pass out notes to the audience. You don't get to stand in front of the audience and explain what your intention was, so everything has to be on the screen. Just clarity of storytelling is something that I learned from him. Also just the manifesto that you have to do it by any means necessary. Just get it done....
