Meet The Man Behind The Film 'Motherless Brooklyn'

November 1, 2019

WPGC's Joe Clair learned actor Edward Norton grew up in the DMV, which sparked a conversation about the area's history. 

Norton also addressed local culture and his new film, "Motherless Brooklyn." 

"When I was writing this film, Obama was being inaugurated to his second term," Norton said. "And there were times I thought to myself, 'Wow, some of these themes of how racism is bait into the infrastructure of cities...all this is going into the rear-view mirror.' And [now] it's like, 'No, this is all still very much worth talking about.'"
