TRANSMIGRATIONS, 6min., USA, Experimental/Drama

Directed by William Harper

Shot over Lake Michigan near Chicago, this film is an expression of my engagement with line and the contrapuntal movement of multiple lines in music and imagery. The visual lines here are traces of the motion of air and lake traffic against the apparent motion of the stars and moon.

A bold, five year old girl reluctantly attends her very first symphony concert with her mother. Being dragged against her will into the auditorium room, Kenya (the young girl) is not content being there.

OURS TO TELL, 17min., USA, Documentary

Directed by Rayka Zehtabchi

Without shame and without fear “Ours to Tell” depicts four people who share their stories and walk in their truth. By owning the lives they choose, what unfolds is an unfiltered and poetic demonstration of how the right to access abortion acts as a dynamic turning point in an individual’s journey to freedom and self love. Each with different perspectives and experiences, the film’s subjects — Brittany, Hannah, Nick and Ylonda — take us inside their worlds, their families, their souls and boldly illustrate the beauty and power of bodily autonomy. As we watch, listen and love each storyteller, we also bear witness to a chilling reality: The fundamental freedom to own our body and future has never been more uncertain than it is today.
