Watch Saint Heron’s Cultural Series from Pitchfork Festival Weekend

Pitchfork Festival weekend in Chicago was truly one to remember for us. In case you missed it, Saint Heron had the honor of collaborating with local, “Windy City” creatives for a cultural series. Two Roll Back, Say That artist talks transpired where our minds and hearts were enriched by the energies and ideas exchanged each night. On Thursday, we chatted with Ghana-born filmmaker Frances Bodomo on Black Radical Imagination following viewings of three of her original films, and on Friday Teen Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Elaine Welteroth moderated a discussion with Young Chicago Authors & Teen Vogue as they unpacked art’s relation to culture and activism.

At Saint Heron, we not only believe Black is beautiful. We firmly believe Black is light, power, promise and the origin of creation. Watch Frances discuss her approach to storytelling, what film school means to her now in hindsight, the productivity of using Black pain in art and more above, and the conversation with Safia Elhillo, Fatima Ashgar, Jamila Woods and Eve L. Ewing in the clip below.
