Anatomy of Wings

Documentary 1h 25m 2020

At first, gathered to create an after-school film project, ten Black middle school girls return each week to collaborate with their Black and *white mentors on a feature-length documentary about their own coming-of-age in Baltimore City. Weeks turn into years. Then, shortly before the girls’ high school graduations, a sea of misunderstandings arises about what’s to come. This self-defined ‘second family’ is left to question if their solidarity will survive the realities of living in a world of racial inequity. *We have capitalized ‘Black’ and lower-cased ‘white’ in recognition of Black Lives Matter and Decolonizing Cinema with presence and spaciousness.
