Writing

Often, I’ve shared my critical thoughts of film and TV through my Twitter or Letterboxd account, but as a critical reviewing student, I got the chance to write for Vox Magazine as part of their coverage of arts and culture in Columbia, particularly the 2018 Citizen Jane Film Festival. In addition, older blog posts covering music, culture, and personal growth are included as well. Come back soon for even more recent writing!

HIGH FANTASY - CITIZEN JANE FILM FESTIVAL REVIEW

Excerpt from review: “Four people are going on a trip. Xoli, the passionate black feminist. Lexi, the owner of the land. Tatianna, the sweet glue that holds the group together. And, finally, Thami, the outspoken, singular male of the group.

SHORTS: WHO CAN TELL YOUR STORY? - CITIZEN JANE FILM FESTIVAL REVIEW

Excerpt from review: “Each of the Shorts: Summit — Who Can Tell Your Story? pieces this year varied in language, location and subject matter, but they each represented stories about women largely not featured in mainstream film. These challenging films felt alive and the characters specific and authentic in their voices onscreen.”
