A screenshot photo of Lowlah, a young Black woman with brown skin, long brown braids wearing a black hoodie. Lowlah looks directly into the camera and is lit on one side of her face with purple lighting.

Jameisha Prescod’s poetic essay film tells intimate stories of three Black people living with chronic pain, while reflecting on the colonial past of modern medicine.

It features dreamy visuals and phone interviews with the intention to archive Black experiences surrounding illness, disability and identity.
