Content Warning 1&2
Content Warning 1&2
Expanded B&W 16mm Cinema Performance
20 minutes

Content Warning engages with a variety of issues facing Black women's access to reproductive health care and sexual assault therapy. Culled from personal anecdotes and memory, I film several performers recounting my experiences with sexual justice to an audience. The sound is removed to enable me to provide audio via a live reverse lip sync. By having the same performer voice this archive of moving images of other performers, I aim to destabilize the singular status of assault testimony. The series currently has the first two iterations of its arc complete and will continue until 10 monologues are filmed in total that will be performed as an expanded feature film-performance.

Performers Jodie Lynn-Kee-Chow and Helina Metaferia.
