MoCADA: Seven Mothers by Pyer Moss x Little X
Seven Mothers, a short film inspired by the life of Kerby Jean-Raymond, designer of Pyer Moss, directed by Director X. Seven Mothers is a love letter to the women who raised Jean-Raymond after his mother’s death and his spiritual journey towards healing from grief via touching, unforgettable vignettes, as these seven, strong women impart lessons about food, business, fashion, academics, sport, family, and faith.
Kerby Jean-Raymond and Director X collaborated to create a film that continues in the dialogue of “American, Also: Lesson 2.” — their [clothing] collection that focuses on the complexities of the modern Black family, community, and celebration of women. This film will stream on MoCADA Digital until July 30.
Presented in partnership with Urbanworld Film Festival, this long-term digital program celebrates the work of filmmakers from the African diaspora by sharing their films with our community.
The Urbanworld Film Festival, founded in 1997 by Stacy Spikes, is one of the largest internationally competitive festivals of its kind. Each year, UW curates a slate of films representing the broadest lens of diversity across stories, characters, themes, and cultures. They fight tirelessly to expand the definition of “urban” beyond ethnicity to include sensibility, culture, and proximity. UW strives to be “the filmmakers festival” and “the people’s festival,” providing a point of intersection where creators and audiences meet to experience bold and diverse artistic works. The Urbanworld spirit transcends the festival with ongoing connectivity to creators and collaborators throughout the year. To learn more, visit Urbanworld online, here.
