Melina Matsoukas

Melina Matsoukas is a groundbreaking director who has already left an indelible impact on the film industry.

Beats by Dre
"You Love Me"
2020 has thrown many of society's ugliest aspects into stark relief, and perhaps none so forcefully as the insidious presence of racism. With Houston rapper Tobe Nwigwe's narration establishing a sense of defiant gravitas from the jump, this arresting film from Beats by Dre interrogates American society's love-hate relationship with Black culture: co-opted for cool points or derided as unsophisticated by turns.
