“I wanted the clouds to go in one direction, the mountains to go in another direction. I wanted the horses to go over there, because I wanted to show you that this is The Hunger Games.” he explained. “I want to show you that this is the type of imagery that’s being presented to all of us. And the only difference is a black dude in the middle of it…The thing is, I don’t have a problem with looking stupid.”
