Haunting shadow puppets highlight this teaser for Nia DaCosta’s upcoming Candyman “spiritual” sequel. The short first appeared on DaCosta’s Twitter page.
She wrote: “CANDYMAN, at the intersection of white violence and black pain, is about unwilling martyrs. The people they were, the symbols we turn them into, the monsters we are told they must have been.”
The short acts like a visual historical primer to the lore of the urban legend and how he came to be.
