Director Statement

As a black Jamaican woman living in America, I find myself constantly navigating core questions about identity, belonging, and otherness. Growing up in Jamaica, with a majority of the population currently being black, racism was never a large concern in modern-day experiences; there were more social issues leaning towards classism and violence. However, when I migrated to America, I realized that I did not just fit in the category of other because of my distinct accent, but also because of the color of my skin, and with that came new realizations about the prejudices that melanin exposes me to. For the first time in my life, I’ve had to grasp what being black meant outside of Jamaica, and desired to portray this exploration through the vehicle of filmmaking.

After watching this film, my hope is that the audience will expand their perspectives beyond their own racial lens to see through the experiences of other racial groups. It is my hope that, on a personal level, they then consider their roles in racial confrontations, become more aware of their social responsibility, and better acknowledge and appreciate the experiences of people who don’t look like them.
