About this submission

To Tend To Heal was born from reflections I gleaned in the wake of the end of a romantic relationship. I wanted to create a piece that explored the depths of love that are present within us. I intended to honor such feelings without fear or apprehension. To Tend To Heal loosely adapts the myth of Icarus in a contemporary context with a Black female lead. The film is a testament to not only letting women, but Black women in particular, openly embrace the experience of love and affection with both a romantic partner and within the self and spirit.
