Please join director and writer Storäe Michele as she celebrates her thesis film, [the listening heart]. Performed with an amazing cast of incredible women of color, this film brings to life an original story grounded in Mayan and Yoruba cosmologies. The protagonist Ix Chel originated from collaborative conversations with Edyka Chilomé, as a child healer learning the word love. Through embodied poetry, song and dance, we uplift the feminine divine and investigate the ways we communicate the meaning of love to our youth.
This film features dynamic individuals: Jadele McPherson, Shae Marie, Jaguar Mary X, Kevonnie Shelton, Cocoa Sarai, Jaye Watts, Alexandria Johnson, Esperanza Serrano, Medina Ouida, Kay Lowry, Tamara Dumay Murad, and Jazmin Peralta–who are exceptional artist, performers, entrepreneurs, mothers, activists, singers, songwriters, dancers, poets, & educators. This piece is beautifully captured by our dynamic cinematographer Cspinfilms Chris Gman.
Featuring: Panel Discussion with Director & Cast.
