Gold Token

Directed By Ewurakua Dawson- Amoah.  

The very talented, Ewurakua Dawson-Amoah, takes us on a journey of black ancestry and the parallels between our modern culture today. We’re treated to beautiful imagery, celebrating who we are as culture and how it reflects today. Ewurakua has a beautiful eye, as seen with her previous short, The Girl That Looks Like Me. The piece is driven by poem, and the visuals fit so well.
