‘Self-Sufficient Sovereign’ is a short film by student Cassandra Joseph. She fuses together 70’s influences with modern day digital platforms. She illustrates first world problems; such as planning a night out with your friends. The film follows a fabulous disco diva going about her day, the film ends with her forgetting all her problems and becoming the Self-Sufficient Sovereign. Cassandra describes it as “a celebration of natural afro hair through a 70s inspired, heart shaped, rose-coloured lens”.
