Online Short Features Interviews With Cast, Crew of Critically Acclaimed Film PARIAH

New York, NY – December 27, 2011, In The Life Media, producers of the award-winning documentary series In the Life, today announced the release of Pariah: A Closer Look, an online-exclusive video featuring interviews with the director, producers and stars of the critically acclaimed new film Pariah. A Focus Features release, PARIAH is one of the first mainstream coming-of-age films to feature an African-American, lesbian protagonist. It follows 17-year-old Alike (Adepero Oduye) as she discovers her sexuality and identity while struggling with the sense that she doesn’t belong.

In the five-minute video, stars Adepero Oduye (Alike), Kim Wayans (Audrey), and Pernell Walker (Laura), along with director Dee Rees and producer Nekisa Cooper, discuss how their own experiences relate to the characters and themes of the film, which opens in select theatres on December 28, 2011.
