Join the #ChiFilmFest as we celebrate Ruth Carter for her work with cinematic costume design. In a conversation with Award-winning actress and playwright Regina Taylor, Ruth Carter will reflect on her body of work and her creative process.
Oscar-nominated costume designer Ruth Carter has created some of cinema’s most memorable costumes over the last three decades. She’s displayed tremendous range with her playful and provocative work on Spike Lee’s #SchoolDaze and #DoTheRightThing, her authentic period costumes for #StevenSpeilberg’s #Amistad and Ava DuVernay ‘s #Selma, and her recent Afrofuturist designs for the Marvel blockbuster #BlackPanther. With remarkable skill and talent, Carter has consistently demonstrated a powerful understanding of the relationship between wardrobe and character.
