Safiyah Chiniere has a deep love for storytelling and filming. Her experience ranges from Documentary Filmmaking to Director of Photography, Editing, and Photography; as she steps into directing, she uses film to amplify the stories and the voices of people of color, women, and femmes.
The specific space of her subject matter gives a firm footing to develop a visual style necessary to operate within the fertile interior spaces of these communities. It presents a stimulating and refreshing approach to capturing the faces, bodies, and various expressions of intimacy, slowing down the pacing and magnifying spaces to highlight that which is so often overlooked, dismissed, or delegitimized, all while maintaining wholehearted and sincere storytelling. Vocalizing in film is very important, especially in the community. The importance of political, social, and climate change is significant in the art of filmmaking.
