"Our Crown" || Short Film

Director: Krystina Archer

Director of Photography: suzaine!

What's in a Braid? A physicality that is both soft and strong, interwoven, to withstand, embodied by a soul that runs deep and vast, with gravitas, grace, and greatness.

This is a love letter to black beauty, celebrating the braid, highlighting it as the purest form of self-love and self-expression.
