thoughtful films for social
minivibe | Tropical Witchery
Inspired by the radiant female tribes around the world. Friendships are where women feel truly seen, nurtured, and drink in strength. I immediately felt drawn to film in the ancient bamboo forests of Nu'uanu to create a magical setting for a coven. Exploring through the lens of the divine feminine, I researched rituals of friends bonding in the nude for my mood board. It turned out in this majestically witchy, divinely feminine visual of Hawai'i.
minivibe | Mujeres del Barro Rojo
A tribute to the ancestral wisdom of the women of Tlapazola, Oaxaca. Taken for Fundación En Vía, an organization empowering Zapotec women with interest-free microloans. Their nonprofit organizes tours of local artisans, which is how they generate the funding for female entrepreneurs throughout Tlacolula Valley. I wanted to show the inherent joy felt from doing a craft that comes from your soul. The Mujeres del Barro Rojo iare world famous for their red pottery, taught through generations of Tías, Doña and Abuelitas in their community.
