Test 001

Inspired by Haile Gerima's Bush Mama (1976), Ousmane Sembene's Black Girl (1966), and Andy Warhol's Screen Tests (1960s), I shot a short vignette (an exercise of sorts) of my mother and an African mask to the poem "Si Souvent," written and recited by Leon Damas, and the song "Slow Hot Wind" by Penny Goodwin.
