‘Healing’ Video for Girls Who Code’s ‘Sisterh>>d’ Album Expresses Vulnerability and Unity

‘Healing’ Video for Girls Who Code’s ‘Sisterh>>d’ Album Expresses Vulnerability and Unity

In celebration of International Day of the Girl this Thursday, Black Dog Films created the latest instalment of the Girls Who Code’s ‘Sisterh>>d’ series. It’s a digital visual album celebrating sisterhood which aims to empower girls around the world. 
Black Dog directing duo Saela Davis and Anna Rose Holmer directed ‘Healing,’ featuring vocals by Lizzo, electronic music artist and activist Madame Gandhi and Seattle’s Northside Step Team. 
The music film emphasises the power of #sisterhood in navigating trying times.
“We were honoured that Girls Who Code and Yours Truly asked us to be part of such a positive and vital campaign,” Saela and Anna said. “This specific moment in time adds urgency to the message of ‘Healing’ and reminds us that we have a responsibility to amplify others’ voices through the work we create. There was a magical alchemy that came out of bringing everyone together in the name of Sisterhood. The process of the collaboration mirrors the spirit of the campaign. We hope girls and women will take a moment to evaluate their own mental health and recognise the daily work—public and private, individual and collective—that goes into fighting for change. It’s okay to ask for help and prioritise healing. We need you at your strongest, whatever that requires. Looking out for one another is the most important part of any movement. Expressing vulnerability is strength. Fostering unity is strength.”
