One Magenta Afternoon
This film is for African American magic: for Hoodoo, Rootwork. This film is about the love between a Black grandson and a Black grandfather — for my own grandfather, a jazz musician and artist — this film is about a black youth’s connection to analog technology, the love for ingenuity & practical divinity. This work is for the child I never got to fully be and yet the child i was unashamed to be in the presence of my Pop Pop: the soft boy, the lavender boy.
One Magenta Afternoon is a short narrative afroqueer jazz fashion film, and proof of concept film for my original feature film script Lavender Boy.
