Emma K - 14th Sept 2018

Geej Ower has directed a video with a message of female empowerment at its heart for Ray Blk's Empress. 

Sat alone and spotlit in an otherwise dimly lit cinema, Ray begins her performance - and then the seats around her slowly fill up, with friends and family, until the shot is finally packed with strong women who know what they are worth.
