Yellow Fever








An exploration of ‘feeling a little bit uncomfortable.’ I am interested in the concept of skin and race, and what they imply; in the ideas and theories sown into our flesh that change with the arc of time. In my film, I focus on African women’s self-image, through memories and interviews; using mixed media to describe our almost schizophrenic pursuit of globalised beauty.
