Whenever I log into the site, I notice their black movie section isn’t exactly desirable. And when I logged into it a few weeks ago when Beyond the Lights was added, I wondered why it wasn’t in the ‘regular’ movie area.

And apparently I’m not the only one wondering.

Screenwriter and director of Beyond the Lights, Gina Prince-Bythewood doesn’t appreciate the fact that Netflix has ghettoized her film. And she’s been vocal about it on social media. The filmmaker believes that her film should be marketed to everyone on Netflix, not just in the ‘black’ section.

What she says makes sense, but I doubt Netflix will change their logarithm when it comes to their films. I mean, if they did, how would I ever know about the low budge films Vivica Fox is always in?
