Frank Ocean writes foreword for upcoming ‘Moonlight’ book
A24 Films will release a 224-page book about the 2016 award-winning film, “Moonlight”, which was written and directed by Barry Jenkins.
The book will include a foreword penned by singer-songwriter Frank Ocean, along with an essay by The New Yorker critic Hilton Als.
It will also feature acceptance speeches from the 2017 Oscar night that awarded the film best picture, after Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” as the winner.
