LOGLINE: Longing for a baby, an unhinged, young woman concocts a plan to use a dating app to find the perfect man to impregnate her. However, when she chooses a heartbroken Casanova, she soon finds out that a baby might not be the only thing he’s leaving her with.
SYNOPSIS: My documentary is about the way black hijabis are represented in the media through dance. I plan to enlighten people’s knowledge on us black hijabis through a preformative and cinematic documentary.The media is extremely biased in who they want to present to the public and I find that unfair. We work just as hard as others so why is our talent pushed aside?
