Broken is a short film about a complicated mother-daughter relation wrought by cultural tension and traumatic experience, leading to a heart-breaking end.

Written and directed by upcoming filmmaker Juliana Ayeni-Stevens, produced by Purple Night Colour.

BITE YOUR TONGUE is a show about an uprising. A revolution of people who have been oppressed by micro-aggressions and colonial baggage for too long. The show explores what might happen if a community built a utopia in a world that wants them to bit their tongue.

Directed by Miranda Cromwell, produced by Talawa Theatre Company.
