Menstruation is stigmatized and silenced in many parts of the world. By pairing interview sound recordings with capitvating visuals, Bleed With Me illustrates in both message and medium that open conversation is a key to destigmatizing menstruation.
India Through My Senses
Often, when we travel, the only thing familiar to us is our body. However, even then, the way our bodies react and respond to the huge amount of newness around us can sometimes be unfamiliar. This is not a narrative film. Nor is it at all representative of my experience in India this past year. It is simply a collection of sensory experiences that forced me to look inside, reflect, and allow my senses to process my surroundings. These are some of the things I saw, smelled, touched, tasted, and heard, that I happened to capture on camera. I hope this video will allow you to feel some part of this experience for yourself.
