“The film is an exploration of origin, asking the question how much of ourselves do we bring with us versus leave behind in our evolution,” a press release notes. “The artist returned to Third Ward Houston to answer this.”
Solange directed and edited the film herself with assistance from Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori, along with Autumn Knight and Robert Pruitt.
