Candyman is getting a reboot later in the year (well, we hope its still this year) and as a precursor, director Nia DaCosta shares an animated prologue to the film. The use of shadow puppetry is simply amazing and DaCosta says there’s more to come throughout the film itself. Enjoy the video below and lets hope we can still see the film this Fall.
CANDYMAN, at the intersection of white violence and black pain, is about unwilling martyrs. The people they were, the symbols we turn them into, the monsters we are told they must have been. pic.twitter.com/MEwwr8umdI
