Loving Fear

Loving Fear is one of Jade Baker's first musical short films, where she directs, produces and also acts as a main star, named Fear. At some point Fear & Love, the main principle actor, Sahara Lewis, dances battle with each other to conquer the triggers and internal wars many black women suffer from. The two main stars get a chance to see if love truly conquers all on the dancefloor of life. In this visual musical film, Sahara's character, Love, clearly faces the shadow elements that lie within us all and with Fear, Jade and they together argue over the black woman's self hated inner world. Seeing their reflection in one another as "black" women, reveals their separate but similar pain and trauma, living in America. This truly scares them both but eventually the two find harmony and realize in order to stop these internal wars, they must integrate their light and dark side to conquer within themselves whatever they are afraid of.
