FilmWeek: ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,’ ‘The Fabelmans,’ ‘Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio’ And More

Published November 11, 2022 at 10:02 AM PST
Letitia Wright stands center frame, only her shoulders up visible. She wears all white, her head hooded by a shear white fabric that falls past her shoulders. Her neck is wrapped in white beaded necklaces starting at her chest and raveling all the way up to her chin. She also wears large earrings that look like saber teeth on each ear and they too fall past her shoulders. She stares straight ahead, her face sullen. White paint is dotted into fine lines across her cheekbones and up her nose. Behind her walks a crowd of other people, also in white as if in a procession.
