BlackFilm.com chats with PARIAH's Adepero Oduye
Posted October 07, 2011
Fred Topel at the film journal BlackFilm.com sat down with Adepero Oduye, the star of Dee Rees' feature PARIAH, to talk about her acting background and her excitement at doing this role. She talks a bit about the kind of work she did for her role:
...we had a homework assignment where we had to go into a black and Latino lesbian club in character and get a sense of that whole world. Go to a straight environment, go to Christopher Street Pier in character. Then Dee was just very open if I had any questions, to talk to her and ask her about anything. So she was available to me all the time. She was open about a lot of stuff.
