However, this is the first time we’ve recorded ourselves having such a revealing conversation on the economics of being a “starving artist,” creating for the sake of creating, and where she finds inspiration to create award-winning projects:

1. Feature film, “Friction”, centered on a community-led revolution against police brutality

2.  “The Hodge”, featuring Cleveland-based artists of color who are using their artistic platform to save their artist-living space

3. “Midst,” a story about two interracial lovers and their struggle between self-identity and societal conformity.
