About this submission
The idea of “Engourdi” started after I learned about the horrific death of George Floyd. The way it shook the world. The way it made me realize things about myself. I wanted to make a film about the ways we handle black death in the media. I wanted to make a film that raised questions about who we are as people. To me, it’s about humanizing our experiences and allowing us to be people. We all share an experience, the human experience. I want this film to allow people to have conversations, and see a different perspective.
