Through obstacles, I push, through discrimination I rise.
I am His daughter, a daughter of destiny.

No longer will women be silenced.

This is a short film tackling the issue of discrimination on both women and people with Albinism. And showcasing their beauty with a fashion twist.
We should protect the woman of this country.

Director Statement

This film serves a few purposes of provoking the viewer.

Firstly, as a male filmmaker in the times of abuse against women specifically in South Africa, this is my way of standing with the women in my life that I love unconditionally and saying that I care, that I love them and that I am sorry for the mistakes I have made against women.

It also gives a voice to a minority group that’s lives are threatened on a daily basis and that are discriminated against regularly because they are women with Albinism.

It’s a renewed look at being fashionably, unapologetically a strong woman in a time of discrimination and fear.
