‘draping’ is a seven episode short film series that examines the complexity of Black femme identities and the durag as a cultural artifact, while serving as an exploration of interdisciplinary cinematography.

Each episode highlights topics (such as mental health, queerness, colorism, spirituality, motherhood etc.) and translates it through a lense of black womanhood, all while experimenting with different elements of film. This revolutionary project seeks to increase representation of intersectional Black womanhood on screen and challenge conventional approaches to storytelling and visual composition via a multi-medium platform that includes: film, photography, poetry, dance, fashion etc.
