Series LGBT studies in video
Summary Badass Supermama is a playful, but questioning personal exploration of race, gender, sexuality, and adolescent notions of beauty and representation. These multi-layered, inter-connected issues are intimately examined through 1970ís "blaxploitation" movie goddess Pam Grier and her characters, particularly Foxy Brown. The videomaker tries on the powerful, badass supermama role of Foxy Brown, while exploring the space between body and image. This lyrical video is gently critical, playing with the idea of masquerade, as well as childhood and adolescent fantasies of black womanhood
Notes Includes excerpts from the films Foxy Brown and Sheba, baby, featuring Pam Grier
