Kingston University Alumni matchfunded £250
Hello! We are a group of MA filmmaking students working on a short drama. We aim to raise anywhere from £100-£500. At £100 we could comfortably pay our actors, food and travel. At £500 we would be able to reserve filming locations, add to set design whilst also taking care of our actors. However, we would be grateful for any amount as anything helps.
We are a group of MA filmmakers at Kingston University. Our director is Kareena Chin who directed and wrote the piece.
Producer: Ariel Looper
Cinematographer: Izadora Dau
Editor: Paige Yancey
Our film captures the unique story of a young black woman experiencing pregnancy for the first time and how such an event can force you to look yourself in the mirror in a more honest way than you ever did before.
As Kareena wrote this piece it came from a place of humor and enlightenment as she reflected on her own experiences as a young black mother whom has had to raise her kids as a single college student.
Her film challenges the audience to not judge a book by its cover and to remember that we can not run from our truth forever as it is something we are unable to escape. It also speaks to the difficulties that happen when navigating interracial relationships and being biracial.
