Film Description

Home is best described as the people and places that feel like home through captured glimpses of play, nature, love, and laughter. The film puts together smaller works where the lives and experiences of Black girls and women remain in constant focus, we are worthy of documenting. This film says I love you for you, thank you for these moments, and that I will always remember how you made me feel.

About the Filmmaker

Kamari Smalls is a multimedia artist who engages the process of archiving via the body through dance and film work. Her work centers the experiences and epistemologies of Black women, girls, and femmes through expression; an expression that takes form in dance, play, and intimacy. Kamari’s use of experimental approaches through dance and film allows for imagination to be the foundation to her artistry and for making other worlds with Black girls and women.
