THE ESSENCE OF N.O.W.: A SHORT FILM
New Orleans, LA, March 30, 2018 – The Essence of N.O.W.: A Short Film is produced by WCWM: Who’s Coming With Me and Cfreedom Photography. This story of self-love, healing, and sisterhood is a silent film told through the original songs of New Orleans women. Produced with an all women and girls production crew, this film is intended to shine light upon the power and unity of New Orleans women while archiving and celebrating their genius.
"I just need to world to be able to see, hear, feel, and experience what I get to experience on a regular basis; extraordinary New Orleans women working together and healing the world. The music they sing, their style, their hair, clothing, jewelry, energy…it has got to be some of the most spiritually healing medicine on Earth. In addition, we are celebrating women in film and helping to widen this narrow lane that we fought so hard to bring into existence. We are committed to creating a new wave of films and stories produced by all Black women and girls crews. It’s a tough job and somebody’s gotta do it, right? Let the somebodies be us.” - Cfreedom
