Have No Fear (USA, Poland | 2017, 18 min)
Directed by: Beata Calinska & Sarah Jacobson in collaboration with Adia Tamar Whitaker
Choreographer and activist Adia Whitaker is a mother of two. Too many sons and daughters from her community have been harmed by police brutality. Frustrated by the fleeting media coverage and public attention, Adia creates a performance piece designed to engage people, using her lyrics to teach children how to stay safe during encounters with the police. Rehearsals slowly become a call to action, a form of resistance, and a way to connect with the community.
