First look at Michael B. Jordan and Octavia Spencer in 'Fruitvale' and interview with the director,

Scheduled to make its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month is the Ryan Coogler-directed indie drama Fruitvale, which stars Octavia Spencer, Michael B. Jordan, Tristan Wilds and Melonie Diaz.

Based the murder of 22-year old Oscar Grant (played by Jordan in the film) - Fruitvale is produced by Forest Whitaker.

In the video interview below, director Coogler talks the film, his motivations for making it, and the filmmaking process in general. I expect Tambay will be talking more in-depth with Ryan at Sundance.

And underneath the video, as well as above, you'll some first-look still images from the film, featuring Octavia Spencer, Jordan, and Diaz.
