This short film is a poetic script that shares the life of one individual who aims for liberation. The story begins with a young female minister who returns home to be with her family, yet she find herself with an internal wrestle of who she is verses who she must BE. For this young minister this is more than her War-on-Drobes and what to wear, but it is her war within herself and simply wanting to be FREE.

Director Biography - Da Saint

Afro-Caribbean American womanist writer, poet, creator and curator. Rev. DaSaint is an Afro-Caribbean American woman of Haitian Descent who is uniquely placed in the sphere of spirituality and artistry, (which she believes aren't always mutually exclusive). Living as a person in the margins of society has given her a deep insight into the life, the arts is her ministry and the world is her canvas. She is about the business of centering those that are often left the margins, while simultaneously lifting up the low places and speaking truth to power in a way that brings life and healing to both those in power and those who have suffered abuse at the hands of power. It is from this lens of womanist, liberation theology that she has pursued ministry for the last 15 years. She is also an Artistic Minister and a spiritual guide who has impacted and touched many with her service in the school, community, hospital and church settings. She’s the founder of LiveLoveLiberate, Inc: Sacred Space for Creative Expressions and Spirit Work: Guiding the Being to Become, an organization that helps in healing modality of people to leverage and harness their passion, power and relationships to achieve wholistic health by loving and owing their own selves. She holds an MSW from Barry University and a MDiv from The Interdenominational Center of The Moorehouse School of Theology. She was born and raised in Miami, Florida but had made roots and found community here in Philadelphia, PA, specifically in Germantown where she curated her home into an intentional creative and healing space known as WynEvaLand.
