Artist Statement/Film Synopsis

way home is an atmospheric visual and auditory landscape through which the artist shares deeply resonant poetry woven from love, pain and longing at the intersection. As we travel with the artist, we are brought on a revealing journey with tender memories of play, grief, abandonment, resilience and various other dissonant emotions the concept of home can invoke for Black folks in the diaspora.
