TRIGGERS

TRIGGERS IS A SHORT FILM THAT CENTERS BLACK WOMEN AND GIRLS’ TRAUMA. A POETIC JOURNEY THROUGH THE WEIGHT OF WITNESS, THE STORIES OF MARISSA ALEXANDER AND OTHER INSTANCES OF INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE THAT I WITNESSED AS AN ADULT AND A CHILD ARE CENTRAL. I TALK TO MY FORMER LITTLE BLACK GIRL SELF. THIS PIECE HONORS HER STRUGGLE AND THE STRUGGLES OF LITTLE BLACK GIRLS EVERYWHERE. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HOLD THE HISTORY OF A LITTLE BLACK GIRL IN MY TRANS-MALE BODY? OR BETTER, HOW DOES IT FEEL?
