Event Description

The Sound She Saw, directed by Crystal Whaley (51 mins)

A documentary film featuring contemporary, ground-breaking Black women photographers. The film reveals the history and struggle of Black women photographers while showcasing and celebrating their work and answering the question: What happens when a Black woman photographer has the agency and the control to reverse the gaze and see the world through her unique lens? The photographers featured in The Sound She Saw challenge the status quo by collectively redefining the narrative, image by image.
