Tayarisha Poe is a storyteller from West Philadelphia who believes that all stories are inherently multi-sensory and multi-dimensional, and thus should be told that way.
Tayarisha Poe is the director of Selah And The Spades (on Amazon) which is a brilliant film about cliques in a private school and the badass Black girl who runs the whole social ecosystem. When you see it you know you’re looking at the debut film of a director who’s going to be making interesting and important films for a while. I wanted to talk to Tayarisha about how to make films, how she developed as a filmmaker, and what she thinks about modern film in general.

Tayarisha Poe is an emerging filmmaker from West Philly. Her debut feature, Selah and the Spades, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Our conversation took place at the Park City festival (and side-note: the background noise is a result of taping this inside a restaurant). We talk raising money for her first film, writing characters of color that are, by design, unkind, and much more.
