9 Gary White & Sarah Richardson – Banana Club

The penultimate film of the night was the brilliant Banana Club, written and performed by Sarah Richardson and filmed by Gary White.  A spoken word video that focuses on female empowerment and celebrating female physical expression. It challenges ideas such as slut shaming, victim blaming and explores club culture as an example of a place where female objectification is highly common.
