The Abyss

From Christina Fonthes:

My short film The Abyss is a self-portrait. Diasporic, and future-now; it explores the theme of my identity as a Congolese-British Queer woman. The piece is based on a poem that I wrote  shortly after having faced trauma as a result of homophobia from close family members.  Although the two works are related, the film is separate from the written poem in that it captures movement and colours (or lack of) in a way the written word cannot. The Abyss, in short, is about embracing the darkness to survive.
