Defining Bonds with Sujata Day She Has The Mic

    • Film Interviews

My guest today is Sujata Day. Sujata’s first feature film, Definition Please, spoke right to my heart. I have bipolar disorder, and I am so glad that it is being seen in a fuller scope. In popular films, we see the extreme side of bipolar disorder. In Sujata's film, the story of Monica and her family shows the much more nuanced side of this mental illness. Sujata’s film is down-to-earth, elegant, joyous and poignant all at the same time. And in our interview we talk about how life is just like that, and that our relationships play a big role in who we are as human beings.
Sujata is known for her starring role as CeCe in Issa Rae’s Awkward Black Girl. She has also recurred for three seasons on HBO's Insecure. Sujata is a Sundance Lab fellow and 2019 HBO Visionaries Ambassador. Her short film, Cowboy and Indian, sold to a major studio for series development. Sujata's award-winning debut feature film, Definition Please, is currently on the film festival circuit.
