“SOMEBODY in NOBODY” is the first of 3 in my HEADLESS ƧERIES SHORTS & a step forward from my past projects; i have spend the past couple months in close conversation with 36 and counting women from different backgrounds and experiences, discussing primal issues women are facing today.

I could never fully comprehend these issues better than them, but I grew up with 3 sisters and now I have 4 nieces; Tracy, Donnella, Amira and April. They’re growing fast with big curiosities about our world, So all of that had me wondering about a few things, mainly our society, a society in {my perspective} built on old ideas of human spirit and domestication which has now led to a very wrong social perception.

I’m no advocate for a specific cause and I don’t believe that plays an imperative part on my endeavors, with this project, as my only goal is to invoke a conversation collectively to ourselves, to each other and to our society as a whole.

Check out the trailer and some behind-the-scenes photography.
