BLACK WOMEN IN FILM | Tamara Bass & Meagan Good | Breaking Barriers for Women of Colour

'What happens when unresolved trauma comes to the surface?' This is one of the central questions that motivated the development and creation of If Not Now, When? (2019) - the directorial debut from Tamara Bass and Meagan Good. In this episode of the Film Forums Podcast, actor, writer and producer Tamara Bass talks to fellow filmmaker, presenter Aiysha Jebali about breaking barriers for women of colour through powerful storytelling and resisting stereotypes. A self-confessed introvert, Bass explains how acting has provided an outlet and mode of expression, the empowerment of setting up a production company, and the struggles of raising finance to make a movie focused on black female characters. That determination to tell this story her way has led to an authentic, well-crafted and beautifully produced movie about love, forgiveness and the incredible bond between women.
