DIRECTOR NIA DACOSTA SHARES HAUNTING CANDYMAN SHORT

Posted on: June 19th, 2020

Ahead of the release of her Candyman “spiritual sequel,” director Nia DaCosta (Little Woods) has revealed a Candyman short film on Twitter—and it cuts deep.

Created using shadow puppetry by Manual Cinema, the short draws parallels between the legend of Candyman and real-world events. “CANDYMAN, at the intersection of white violence and black pain, is about unwilling martyrs,” DaCosta explains. “The people they were, the symbols we turn them into, the monsters we are told they must have been.”

In a follow-up tweet, DaCosta noted that “there’ll be much more where that came from in the film,” so we expect to see more haunting and beautiful animation. Candyman is currently set for release in September.
