our timeline/newsfeed the weekend of july 4th ranged from essentially "yo where the party at" to "read this frederick douglass speech" to "I wish I was 5 years old again" to "fireworks to me symbolize BOMBS and remind me of violent scenes in my neighborhood." point is, we have a lot of friends with conflicting feelings on holidays like independence day in America, due to past struggles and/or presents issues i.e. immigration or marriage rights or police brutality or just the overall feeling of being a second class citizen. that in mind, we took footage from a small get together in Pennsylvania and made this, for them.
