May 3rd, 2016 – Verona is an indie film written and directed by UCLA undergraduate student, Romeo Curtis Brooks. The film takes place in the 1800s and is about a young woman who is deprived of love and made a slave by her biological father. In the discussion, Brooks and the actors brought attention to the stereotypical notions and lack of representation of black people in the (Hollywood) media and how their film, in return, counters these poor ideas of blackness by (re)defining what blackness is.
