CLEOPATRA’S CHARIOT in collaboration with Satch Hoyt (2019)

.

.

Cleopatra’s Chariot is a film and music project that takes on the format of eight vignettes addressing political and poetic narratives interlaced with original footage and found footage in dialogue with Satch Hoyt’s works.
The film is set and pulses in a stream of Black Cosmologies and Mythologies where Afrofuturism and the re-imagination of a utopian Africa is presented thru an act of repossessing Cleopatra and portraying her as an African woman.
