TIFF Scene Breakdowns offer our audience access to the filmmakers and craftspeople behind powerful films, who provide insightful commentary on poignant and meaningful scenes and how they were made.

A few weeks before Moonlight took home the Oscar for Best Picture, cinematographer James Laxton gave us an enthusiastic and personal explanation of how he lit one of his favorite scenes, providing a mini masterclass in cinematography and how it can impact the emotional tenor and meaning of a scene.
