I suppose it’s a truly exciting time for multiplicity in cinema,” Ejiofor said during IndieWire’s 2019 Sundance Studio. “ Of course, all these diverse viewpoints from very powerful media industries and these distinct points of view actually affect the nature and the psychology of the societies that we’re all in, and that’s been part of the matter — that when things are related from only one point of view, that it kind of shuts down the conversation across the board in a cultural setting. Ejiofor continued, “ People don’t have genuine, authentic sources from diverse places, different communities, distinct people’s point of view, or their lives.”
