Kill Your Darlings: Kojo

With a heavy heart, filmmakers delete scenes they love - because they don't fit the story or don't really add anything, for instance. Watch a deleted scene from Kojo.

Director Michael Fequiere: 

"This scene was cut because it did not fit in with the story. Kojo and Emilio are practicing and talking jazz. I like this scene because it shows how sophisticated Kojo and Emilio are when it comes to jazz music even though they are only kids."
