"I said, ‘The only way I can play someone this hard is for something to be peeled away each week, and the first thing that needs to go is the wig.’ I just wanted to deal with her hair. It’s a big thing with African-American women…You start when you’re just a young girl. Do you twist it? Do you leave it natural when it’s so hard to take care of? Then you start wearing wigs but every night before bed you’ve got to take the wig off and deal with your hair underneath. And it’s a part of Annalise that I needed the writers to deal with because I’ve never seen it, ever, on TV and I thought it would be very powerful. It’s part of her mask." - Viola Davis

Um…yea it does. Wowch.
Matthew Curlewis, a dear friend of mine from Provincetown days who now lives in Amsterdam, is crowd-funding the post-production work of the film, BRILLIANCE, which is his baby (he wrote the screenplay and is co-producing the film.) Matthew is a wonderfully creative human being and I suspect this short film has an inspired life ahead of it.
