About this submission
Telling important stories with strong and relevant messages has always been really important to me. With Slave to the Page, I wanted to make a film that speculates the misrepresentation of race within media, but in an exciting, creative and challenging way. The film allowed me to hold a mirror up to society, but without being to preachy and instead allowing the audience to interpret their own message from the film. The film can work as an entertaining thrill ride for some audiences, whilst containing important messages for other audiences; and that is why I chose to tell this story.
