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?
