Times subscribers joined us on February 8 for an exclusive preview screening of Academy Award-nominated film Fences, plus a Q&A with the film's director and star, Denzel Washington. The exclusive event was produced in association with Sky Cinema Oscars®

Watch our Q&A with star and director, Denzel Washington, discussing how he took his latest role in Fences from stage to screen.

The film tells the story of Troy Maxson, a mid-century Pittsburgh sanitation worker who once dreamed of a baseball career, but was too old when the major leagues began admitting black players.
