In March, LIT, a video art work featuring Nyawuda Chuol was screened alongside 15 other artists/collectives at VU at MetroWest’s Come Together: International Women’s Day Exhibition. It was a pleasure to exhibit this work again with a group of diverse and creative women. More about LIT here.

Also for International Women’s Day, Naomi Ball (filmmaker, friend, 1st AD on BLACKBIRD, DOCKED) took the time out to ask me some questions about filmmaking for social change.A big shout out to all of the AMAZING wonderful women who inspire me and who I have the privilege of working with.
