Hair Piece (currently in production 2010)

This experimental video short will be a soulful homage to black girls/women and hair, making visual the personal, dynamic and creative processes of styling one’s hair in order to reveal new truths about black female identity.

Black Girls Face: R. Kelly (prod 2006)

Part personal essay, part documentary, this piece uses the case of controversial and popular R&B singer R. Kelly to show black womanhood in different ways. The director uses close ups of four younger black women’s faces and values their individual voices and collective experiences to do this.
