Dustin Lance Black thinks Trump might like his film if he watched it


The The screenwriter of When We Rise denies that fact that that his film is for a specific audience. Lance emphasized that he wants the whole country to see it, including the newly-elected POTUS. ‘If Donald Trump actually watches the show he might like the show,’ Black told journalists today at the TV Critics Association’s winter press tour. ‘I think a lot of people who voted for Donald Trump will love this show. I don’t see this show as trying to speak to only half of the country. I didn’t write the show for half the country.’The filmmaker understands that When We rise might be not completely matched with the Republican ideas, but insists that ‘this show is not a war. We are not against anyone. This shows how we are related. It’s a conversation about what its like to be a minority in this word and how important it is for us to work together for equality.’‘I do think it’s a necessary conversation to have right now, about what it’s like to be a minority in this world and how important it is to work together for equality,’ Black said. He added: ‘I grew up in the south in a religious home, a military home, a conservative home. I love them and I treasure them. I wrote this for my cousins, and aunts, and uncles, and my family, from that ‘other America,’ to say we’ve got more in common than you think and we can speak the same language.’
