BGN interviews actor Letitia Wright and director Anthony Mandler for the film Surrounded.

Five years after the Civil War, freedwoman and former Buffalo Soldier Moses “Mo” Washington travels west to lay claim on a gold mine — the summation of years of toil for Mo and her community. It is a mean, dangerous world for an unaccompanied Black woman in 1870 America, so when Mo travels into the deep frontier, she does so disguised as a man.

After her stagecoach is ambushed by a group of murderous thieves, Mo is forced to hold legendary outlaw Tommy Walsh captive while the remaining surviving passengers seek help. What ensues is a battle of wills, blurring the line between captor and captive, as they both try to survive the harsh western landscape.

Directed by Anthony Mandler and written by Andrew Pagana and Justin Thomas, the film stars Letitia Wright, Jamie Bell, and Jeffrey Donovan, with Brett Gelman and Michael K. Williams.
