Netflix announced the launch of a collection of films, documentaries and television shows departing from the Black Lives Matter movement in response to world protests after George Floyd’s death.
This streaming giant action follows several other streaming providers such as Criterion Channel, which removes paywall for black films and production, Unisex Paramount Pictures, which offers free streaming of the film “Selma ‘” (2014) until the end of June.
In addition, many studios, companies, and other public figures have been vocal in their support of the Black Lives Matter (BLM).
Today, Netflix launched a collection of streaming Black Lives Matter, which includes titles such as “13” (which takes its title from the 13th Amendment) by Ava DuVernay, “Moonlight” (2016), and Spike Lee’s film “Da 5 Bloods” .
Netflix says that when a user logs in, there is a curated list of titles that may only be able to tell complicated stories and layers of racial injustice and the existence of blacks in America.
“When we say ‘Black Lives Matter,’ it also means ‘stories from blacks are important.’ With the understanding that commitment to systemic change will take time, we begin by highlighting a strong and complex narrative about the experience of black people, “as quoted by Screen Rant.
Some of these films can also be watched by Netflix users in Indonesia.
There is an extraordinary push going on right now for the promotion and celebration of black cinematic filmmakers and workers.
Now there are many great films that feature inspirational black characters such as those distributed by Netflix, “Mudbound” and “High Flying Bird” starring André Holland and Zazie Beetz.
The future looks bright for diversity in Hollywood, with Marvel increasingly serious about diversity in film production.
After Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther broke the box office record, the reality became clear that the audience wanted the diversity seen on the cinema and television screens.
