Director Reginald Hudlin discusses Marshall

October 29, 2017 DGA Q&As in Los Angeles and New York

A young attorney, destined to be the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, battles through a career-defining case in Director Reginald Hudlin’s new biographical drama, Marshall.

Hudlin’s film tells the story of young NAACP lawyer Thurgood Marshall, who travels to conservative Connecticut to assist in the legal defense of a black chauffeur accused of the sexual assault and attempted murder of a wealthy white socialite.

Following the DGA membership screening in Los Angeles on October 29, Hudlin sat down with Director Jeff Byrd (The Quad) to discuss the making of Marshall. Hudlin also spoke about the film following the DGA membership screening in New York on October 25 with Director Michael Moore (Where to Invade Next).

In addition to Marshall, Hudlin’s credits include the feature films House Party, Boomerang, The Great White Hype, Serving Sara, and The Ladies Man; as well as episodes of television series such as Bones, Modern Family, The Office, The Bernie Mac Show and Everybody Hates Chris. He has been a member of the DGA since 1991.
