I Am A Woman – [OFFICIAL SPOKEN WORD]

I wrote a poem last year that I felt was too powerful to leave alone. The words are so strong, I knew it deserved more than one of my homemade videos. I shared it with a few people, even expressed my desire to film a proper video for it to a videographer who dismissed it almost immediately. So I sat on it for a good 6 months before asking my dear friend and film maker  Steffan Zachiyah to film it for me. I love his work and I knew he would understand my vision and make it happen.

I booked ClickJones studio, baked cake and invited some wonderful women down to come and feature in this very simple but iconic video that I was intent on making.

Behind the scenes:

And the wait for it to be edited was incredibly short but tense! I was so looking forward to the finished product and believe me it was worth the wait.

Take a look for yourself and tell me if you too can feel the power behind the words:
