(THIS FILM WAS PART OF OUR 2023 FESTIVAL LINEUP AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON THE SLAMDANCE CHANNEL) Through a series of chaotic vignettes, this experimental short follows Ele, a visual artist grappling with darkness as it relates to being queer and dark-skinned in a violent, bigoted world. The film quietly foregrounds the complicated yet integral influence darkness has held in their life and their eventual realization of its importance as a survival tool and a legitimate aspect of their identity.
