Living Your Truth
A short film project
In this opening scene, I was able to release pain through song. "Purple Moon" written by @ricardobouyett.
I felt the need to bring stories with intent to trigger emotions & highlight critical issues. It initially started with telling stories of others experiences but at the last minute, I decided to make it more personal and use my family as an example. During this experience, I felt cleansed, awakened and freed.
I present to you "Living Your Truth" a short film that speaks about owning your past, present and future. #yourstorymatters
"Working with my partner and brother on this project was inspirational. It leads to healing for both of us, a family unit.
Showcasing black Millennials being vulnerable & celebrating their sexuality on film was very critical. I wanted to capture our personal stories that are often neglected because of societal restrictions and cultural traditions.
We shot this project within two days and created improving moments of #BlackJoy ." --
