While looking at my blog last December I noticed that I said, way back in 2009, that I wanted to make a documentary about Black women’s sexuality.
Two weeks later I outlined the questions I wanted to ask, the people I wanted to interview, and the angle that I am pursuing. In many ways, the documentary is a Black feminist response to what I have called the “Steve Harvey Industrial Complex”. I am excited to engage with the material through a different medium, as I have been blogging about the topic for years, and my masters thesis is on Black women’s sexuality.
Video however, is different, because while writing forces me to turn inward, video creating requires that I turn outward.
I am excited to share with you all what I discover both in terms of the content, but also about the documentary making process.
