Blackout

A sudden power outage leads to an impromptu shadow performance that inspires an African immigrant to revisit the past and confront her marriage.
14 minutes, digital. (2013)

This film was born out of the experiences of my mother, my aunts and my grandmothers: immigrant women who have spent decades making homes away from home; passing down memories of cultures, histories and language to their children.
