Forever Your Girl
Forever Your Girl
Super 8mm Color
8 minutes

Forever Your Girl acts out the loss of childhood innocence and desire through a hypersexualized subject attempting to ride a carousel kiddie ride. Black girlhood is often an accelerated path to becoming an adult where innocence and bodily agency are denied and any attempts to return are simultaneously deemed inappropriate and unobtainable. While inspired by soft-porn aesthetics, it defies the anticipated imagery and familiar mood of pornographic content. The scenes are similarly disorienting with flashing lights, glamor aesthetics, and slow repetitive actions.
