Project Main Details

Behest of a Fading Diva 
The film is a docu-style portrait of a transgender woman living in the woods. The film is based off a poem by Qiana Towns called, "Behest of a Fading Diva." The VO in question would, of course, be the poem being read. The film will be read as part of this years Motion Poems festival.

Overall, we're looking for someone, like the poem's title implies with a ton of sass. Powerful, strong, black woman.

Script Details

Don’t let nobody fuck with the guppies
or the lavender girls at drama club. Lonnie and Teeka
need dresses for ball, and somebody go with November
to get her test results when they come back.

Clear up the rumors behind me. Let them bitches
know I ain’t gone crazy and I ain’t on Jenny Crank.
I ain’t killed no weenie dog, wrapped the bible in silk
with a hot glue gun or swallowed globs Vaseline.
I was shining my face, protecting my skin
from the wind.

This wheelchair is just cause I’m tired, you know.
I been stomping the catwalk with these feets
for longer than these kids been alive. A bitch needs
rest and relaxation at the end of the day.

Don’t let them hurt over me, lingering and snotting
like school girls recollecting old love.
It’s like my big sister Carolyn used to say:
Pain is real but it don’t mean we need to feel it
everywhere we breathe.

Tell them bitches I ain’t dying,
I’m just looking for another place to live.
