If you watch anything today, please watch this magnificent profile on the icon @IAmCicelyTyson. I smiled, cried and am inspired beyond words. She’s a dream of a woman and an artist. 96 years wise. Her must-read memoir just debuted. It is luminous, like her.

It won't get a ton of ink today but two films from Array were honored with John Cassevetes (>500K productions) nominations at #SpiritAwards. RESIDUE & LINGUA FRANCA

These are the filmmakers who need the MOST promotion to be successful & @ava w/ @ARRAYNow is doing that work.

Thank you very much for recognizing this. From all of us at @ARRAYNow. 🖤
