|Poet Sojourner Ahebee and Filmmaker Kira Bursky- Check out their collaborative film project and vote to send Kira to Sundance|
|Filmmaker Kira Bursky featured in Seventeen Magazine|
This is an important feminist project. Sojourner’s poetry urges girls and women to name those
things we historically keep silent about and Kira’s insights and filmmaker’s artistry poignantly
delivers this message. Sojourner stated that, “the film is in part about depression, but also about
Black, female existence in the world and all the challenges that accompany being a Black girl. We
worked really hard on this project, took risks, opened up, and the result was a really funky documentary/moving poem.”
Please view this short film and VOTE for it and offer a COMMENT. Every vote puts these young
women closer to becoming finalists in the 2016 Sundance Ignite Fellow Program!
Let’s support them!!! Here is the link to do just this:
