2020 Young Guns - Young Guns
Agency Phillip Youmans
I made Nairobi with the support of Solange Knowles and her creative agency Saint Heron. I want to tell honest, Black stories. I'm looking for the new honesty in things. I'm looking for the whole picture because I feel like the truth always comes out anyway. It does seem like there is a very real resurgence of Black voices, and we're being heard from different perspectives with stories about us that have never been told before. I think I'm fortunate that I was able to make this now.
My Role was:
Writer/director. Upon immigrating to NY, a West-African Mother finds comfort in the dresses her daughter makes for her.
