Sometimes the transformations of adolescence feel like being stuck
in a crazy game show with ever changing trials. Well, a group
of girls from TVbyGIRLS feel like they know it all too well and created
an experimental video to share the funny ups and downs, missed turns
and confusing choices of that volatile time of every girls life.
TVbyGIRLS confronts the media sterotypes of girls roles in a feisty
video poem about the complexities of who they really are. Featuring
and written by the TVbyGIRLS CORE GIRLS for every girl who knows she
is a bundle of marvelous contradictions
||We Don’t Let Labels Stick
Society is continuously giving people labels as a way to
define or categorize them. People of a certain economic class,
race, sex or interest placed into a group stripped of their individuality.
In this piece, TVbyGirls looks beyond these labels, giving voices
and depth to those not often heard.
This short video blends documentary interviews and evocative images
to share the inner thoughts of a group of Somali teenage girls about
the hijab (the Muslim woman’s headscarf).
This experimental short video mixes two poems written by two girls
on the cusp of adolescence. Delightful and evocative images play with
the conflicting emotions behind a first kiss…anticipation, exhilaration
confusion, and disappointment.
