"Do you feel safe in your body?" Using street interviews, archival footage, and remnants of film interrupting images throughout the piece, Ja'Tovia M. Gary has viewers confront ideas of love and commodification through the beauty of black women. From their joys and traumas to their artistic creations, The Giverny Document (Single Channel) is a luscious rumination on the lived experiences of black women. At times delicate and daring, this film is an experimental exploration of the vast emotions that black women experience in this world, framed by the materiality and documentation of the richness of their existence. – Elizabeth Myles
