"Rebirth Is Necessary"
Director Jenn Nkiru
"Rebirth is Necessary" pieces together dreamlike portraits with stunning archival footage that includes Afrofuturism pioneer Sun Ra. London-based director Jenn Nkiru said of her work:
“I had so many images, texts, sounds that I was collecting and taking in privately in my quiet space, constantly like food - it was food for me in fact... Creating this piece felt like therapy. It’s where I got to reconcile my worlds: the material and the spiritual... I hope it can be a source of inspiration, affirmation and therapy to others as it has been to me...”
