“FEED ME” is a coming-of-age poetry film that celebrates intimacy, sensuality, and pleasure. This film is a part of an ongoing exploration of ‘pleasure activism’ (as coined by Adrienne Maria Brown) by which the pursuit of joy, desire, and pleasure is a necessary practice, especially for queer black women and their communities. “FEED ME” imagines the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of this romantic realm liberated from narratives of struggle and/or oppression.

Director Statement

"FEED ME" is a fragment of a larger multidisciplinary project exploring pleasure using film, poetry, and performance. The film visually encapsulates a longer ten-minute poem/performance piece also titled “Feed Me” that was written by director Soma Okoye in 2018 and performed live in 2019. The poem itself is based on words, phrases, and images that were used to describe sexual fantasies written and submitted to me by Queer People of Color in 2018. In a sense, the film is the third phase in a creative lineage. The film is based on a poem, the poem is based on a series of stories.
