‘We Are Gathered Here Today’ with Rae Dawn Chong – Interview

GameStop, Inc.

Rae Dawn Chong talksabout her latest film, ‘We Are Gathered Here Today’ about a family using technology during the height of the pandemic.

We speak to Rae Dawn Chong about her latest film, ‘We Are Gathered Here Today‘ about a family only connecting via technology when a loved one ends up in the hospital during the height of the pandemic.

Rae Dawn Chong (The Color Purple, Commando, Soul Man, Beat Street) plays Mary Reed in the emotionally daunting, heart felt film, ‘We Are Gathered Here Today‘.

Written and Directed by Paul Boyd, ‘We Are Gathered Here Today‘ follows a family who is on the verge of losing the patriarch due to Covid-19, where they have to say their goodbyes to him via technology instead of in-person.

The story itself is heart wrenching, as I know someone who lost their father on Good Friday, 2020 and no one was allowed to say their goodbyes due to Covid protocols.

Chong, takes us along for the ride, not only in the film but this interview with an array of emotions and spirituality that has been lacking in modern conversations. In a world where everyone is waiting for their turn to talk instead of actively listening, Chong reminds us that not only ‘We Are Gathered Here Today‘ but in life, as anxiety take over and people have their kneejerk reactions, we need to take a step back and fine a moment of peace in these struggles.

Official Synopsis:

Starring and produced by Danny Huston (Yellowstone, Wonder Woman, Big Eyes), and featuring a remarkable ensemble cast including Lin Shaye, Phoebe Tonkin, Parker McKenna Posey, Luna Blaise, Nicole Ari Parker, Peter Jason, Jenny O’Hara, Bill Smitrovich, Rae Dawn Chong, and Javicia Leslie, We Are Gathered Here Today is now available on digital from Cinedigm.

Written and Directed by Paul Boyd, We Are Gathered Here Today fixes on a family that comes together over video conference during the pandemic.

What isn’t talked about during this COVID-19 pandemic is that when someone is taken to the hospital it’s a curbside drop-off. COVID-19 hospital protocols dictate that family members are not allowed to be at the side of their loved ones to comfort them in their time of most need. This film explores the emotions over 1 million U.S. families have gone through since this deadly pandemic started. We Are Gathered Here Today is a film about a multi-generational mixed-race family coming together to say their last goodbye to the patriarch of the family, while at the same time dealing with other underlying issues that family gatherings can bring. All of which take place over Google Meet video conferencing.

We Are Gathered Here Today‘ is now available Now on Digital platforms.
