London based filmmaker Jan Rufus films look to examine culture, identity and connectivity. Her latest, ‘Brotherhood’ is a captivating short dance film that explores the themes of oppression, injustice, and unity through African dance. It highlights the challenges that black males experience within society and highlights the power of allyship in bringing about healing and change.
Rufus, "Brotherhood is a film in response to the tragic murder of George Floyd, the film addresses some of the racial issues present in our society. In this film we use African Dance and aesthetics as a medium to stand against injustice and promote unity. We wanted this film to give African dance talent a platform to share their art and culture through storytelling."
