A black boy learns contradicting lessons of manhood and masculinity on the day of his cousin’s funeral.
Winner of 2020 Sundance Jury Award for U.S. Narrative Fiction.
Nick Kush: It’s the understatement of the year to say we’ve collectively been through a lot recently. But with much of the upheaval has been the chance to reflect, and possibly improve and understand our underlying biases. While it was made many months ago, -Ship often feels like it’s directly in step with much of the current conversation as it confronts many of the norms attributed to the Black community.
