His most recent film is the comedy Our Family Wedding (2010), starring Forest Whitaker and America Ferrera. Famuyiwa’s films mainly explore themes of racial diversity and acceptance of oneself and others, especially within communities of color. In the majority of Famuyiwa’s films, friendship plays a central role to the characters’ development and progression throughout the film.
