In South Africa's newspaper Cape Times, Tracey Saundes spoke with PARIAH writer/director Dee Rees about making the film and bringing it to Africa. It's an engaging interview covering the state of LGBT people in Afriaca to finding PARIAH's star Adepero Oduye. Dee defines her project with such passion:

We sold our house to fund the film. I hope black lesbians will have the courage to come to the screenings. We made this film because we wanted to tell our story, but it is more than just a black gay film.
