LITANY


EXPERIMENTAL
SHORT FILM

Directed, Shot and Edited x Jordan Phelps

︎

A Dance Film in 5 Parts Manifested & Performed by
Po’ Chop | Jenn Freeman (@itspochop)

With Support from Rebuild Foundation
+ The Chicago Dancemakers Forum 

LITANY uses brown paper and imagination to create new worlds full of rumbling anger and playful humor.

LITANY is a voyage through a wooden dollhouse. A prayer whispered in grass-lined lots. A leap into the historical pages of Ebony Magazine. A collage.

LITANY is an exorcism expelling antiquated notions of Blackness, queer identity, spirituality, grace, rage, and healing.

Produced x VAM STUDIO

Trailer Music x Gerronimo Calloway 
Coloring x Sam Howells
