Can I live?

Set it off (1996)

All I wanna do is make beautiful sincere art ya feel me? I want to create all the things I desire to see. I want to actualise all my dreams and ideas. I don't want have to beg the rich white people for money to make my shit happen, although i am grateful to the ones who have given me funds and great opportunities. I want to do it my way.  I don't want to have to justify to 'people in charge' why my films etc are about  BLACK PEOPLE, BLACK WOMEN, BLACK YOUTH, BLACK LIFE, BROWN GIRLS, STORIES OF THE MARGINALISED ETC. Why the fuck should they make me feel like there is no audience for these stories? I'm sick of these glass ceilings and all this industry bs. I just want things to work out the way I want them to.
