WeTransfer "We are the womxn" by WePresent

WeTransfer's short film with FKA Twigs explores the complexities faced by women of colour and how they can overcome hardship through community, safe environments and creativity.

Set to Mary Magdalene with footage of FKA Twigs at Afropunk Festival, the film shows the Cellophane performer as she participates in a moon dance in celebration of womxn with spiritual leader Queen Afua. 

After the moon dance, FKA Twigs and other moon dance participants unwind at Atlanta’s first black strip club.

Speaking of her experience at the Blue Flame, FKA Twigs said: "I’m actually pretty shy but I felt so encouraged to dance and enjoy my body by all the amazing womxn who came together. 

"My experience at the Blue Flame solidified that. Although historically womxn are often pitched against each other for their looks or their assets by the patriarchy, when left to our own devices we are incredibly nurturing and healing for each other."

It was directed by Ivar Wigan through EverybodyNeedsUs.
