5:00,  LOVE SOLILOQUY

Written and directed by Astin Rocks

Shoot location: Jackson, Yazoo City, Natchez, MS; Atlanta, GA, Oakland, CA

Completion date: 2018

Distorting the perception of true events, Love Soliloquy uses avant-garde storytelling to reveal the psyche behind young women navigating their relationships.

 

The film supports and champions Black women who fight to suppress their depression, insecurities, and harsh criticism of their identity. Each visual depicts the woman not as a victim of circumstance, but the anti-hero in her own love sorry, celebrating herself in her most polarized. With this, we hope to encourage WOC celebrating ourselves, flaws and all.
