Talk Black

Directed by Destiny Macon

Mahogany is a talented black engineer working in the not-so-subtly racist south. She’s been working at TLS for five years, but her boss continually gives the two new guys preferential treatment. As a coping mechanism Mahogany creates Liquida, a wild and expressive reflection of her self-consciousness. There are three versions of Liquida who, in their own way, try to get Mahogany to speak up for herself. When her boss embarrasses Mahogany in front of the new guys as well as a very important client, Liquida finally takes over Mahogany’s body. And she holds nothing back.
