BLACK DON'T CRACK 

Dir: Ayesha Ramsay 

Poet: Theophina Gabriel / Empoword

BULLDOGS

Dir: Zara Sands 

Bulldogs explores suppressed aggression and ambition in girls. The film looks at the outcome of society’s moralistic expectations and repression of the competitive nature of young girls. The film questions where the real line is between playfulness and an attack, and how these ways of looking at the situation are both subjective and involve the loss of detail.
