The Black Fist Series Short Film Pt.1

This is the very first short film of a hand painted and crafted visual art installation called the ‘Black Fist Series’. This short film is based around my life as a dad and the society me and my daughter live in. I was inspired by being raised by a single mother and the things that I seen growing up. The first place the Black Fist Series was installed was the Memphis Slim Collaboratory in Memphis, TN., and this short film premiered at the opening and during the installation.

“The Black Fist Series is a social experiment, it’s everything that a black kid seen while growing up in Memphis, TN in the 90s, it’s everything that wasn’t noticed in the media, its the social issues we face today, it’s propaganda in the black community, and most importantly; it’s our history.” -Najee S.
