So Misunderstood

As the only woman and Black employee in her small San Francisco, California tech startup office, Alice Scott feels the constant pressure to hold it all together in front of her coworkers. But her life is transformed with the onset of the pandemic.

Titled after a song inspired by the day-to-day effects of implicit bias, So Misunderstood is a genre-bending short film weaving together spoken word, music, dance, and visuals into a story that highlights the challenge of authenticity and inclusion in an ingrained workplace culture.

Directed by Seretse Njemanze and Jehnovah Carlisle (USA)
