‘REJOICE RESIST’ WINS AESTHETICA ‘BEST FASHION’↓
The Aesthetica Short Film Festival is an international film festival which takes place annually in York, England, at the beginning of November. Founded in 2011, it is a celebration of independent film from around the world, and an outlet for supporting and championing filmmaking.
‘Rejoice Resist’ was presented as part of ‘Collective Power’, which spanned the genres of documentary, dance, narrative and fantasy and showed stories that are “touch points for today’s most pressing topics including gender, beauty, isolation, and the transient nature of life that we all so often try to forget.”
‘Rejoice Resist’ celebrates and shows Black pleasure as the ultimate form of resistance. It highlights the importance of allowing yourself to feel joy in the face of adversity.
