Moonlight on Monday cleaned up at the Gotham Independent film awards in New York.

Based on Tarell Alvin McCraney's play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue, Moonlight, written and directed by Barry Jenkins, follows an African-American man (played by Trevante Rhodes) who struggles to come out gay over three periods of his life while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. Andre Holland, Ashton Sanders and Alex R. Hibbert also star in the film.

The film won best feature, best screenplay, best ensemble and the audience award.

In accepting one of the awards on Monday, director Barry Jenkins said, “When I made this film, I thought five people would watch it.”

Moonlight has made $8.3 million and has generated Oscar buzz.
