ANNA-KAT: FIFTEEN

hands

I am so proud of one of my oldest and dearest friends on the release of her deeply personal, powerful and vulnerable track ‘Fifteen’. The age of fifteen is a delicate time. It is the awakening of sexuality…a time when one is still too legally young to fully explore it…yet old enough that situations will arise where it might happen anyway.

We shot her music clip in black and white because sex without consent is an inexcusable act. The perpetrator may have been forgiven, but not what they did. The healing process for sexual assault is often helped by finding the courage to share these experiences with others. I acknowledge the strength of my friend Anna in doing so.
