"It’s nice that it’s happening," says Simien, adding: "It’s devastating that it’s happening on the heels of yet another series of murders by the state of Black people. But also, as an artist, you kind of wonder, 'Is anything I’m doing really even matter? Is anything I’m doing even really going to move the needle and what’s happening in the world?' And in that regard, it’s nice to know that there’s something that we’ve made, that we’ve been pouring our entire being into, and killing ourselves to make, that’s actually meeting the cultural moment right now. That does feel like, 'O.K., I don’t know, I’ve done something meaningful. So, it’s complicated.'"
