Director Statement

Being a woman, being black and being a filmmaker, that's what gives me the impluse to give a voice to those who are constantly being told to lay low and to be silent about their conditions. By giving a voice, through my films, to the women, to the racised amazing people and to the sex workers, I hope I am educating someone out there.
