Chinonye Chukwu, the director behind Till, shared a message stating that Hollywood is "committed to upholding whiteness."
It comes after the biopic on Mamie Till-Bradley, the mother of murdered 14-year-old Emmett Till, received zero Oscars nominations.
In an Instagram post, the 37-year-old said: "We live in a world and work in industries that are so aggressively committed to upholding whiteness and perpetuating an unabashed misogyny towards Black women.
"Regardless of any challenges or obstacles, I will always have the power to cultivate my own joy."
