Nerdophiles had the pleasure of chatting with the brilliant director Jon M. Chu about his upcoming musical feature, In the Heights! 

In the Heights is a love letter to Washington Heights and a passionate story that uses vibrant dance sequences and melodic tunes are woven into the intricate lives of the community. It is a wonderful display of Latinx culture that shows the commonalities that bind the community & the differences that make it so rich. It shows how the immigrant story is the American story and reminds us of the importance of family, community, and following your heart.

Watch our sit-down with Jon M. Chu as he talks about his intentionality in telling the stories of communities of color, and so much more!

In the Heights lights up theaters and streams on HBO Max on June 10th!
