In a year of extraordinary, award-winning independent features, Moonlight – a coming-of-age film featuring an African-American cast, gay themes, an unconventional screenplay structure, and a mere $1.5m budget won the Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay Oscars and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Picture.

This seminar includes a scene-by-scene breakdown of the film, a discussion of its business model, and an examination of the elements it shares with two of its fellow nominees, the Australian films Lion and Tanna.
