Reparations, Meditation, and Purpose: A Talk with Filmmaker Chiest Love

Most people can recall pivotal moments in their life. For some, those moments define their view on the world while others paint a picture of their purpose in it. For Chiest Love it’s the former; he remembers being a young child overhearing his mother crying. Although he can’t recall the reasoning, he assumes it was over a guy she was dating. Then she turned on Dru Hill and began singing and dancing, and the sadness lifted. At that moment, he knew his purpose. “I remember thinking that’s it. That’s what I want to do.”
