Jaime Sunwoo presents Equality Tea

Throughout America, women organized tea parties for meetings and fundraisers to support the suffrage movement. The Woman’s Suffrage Party sold ceylon, young hyson, gunpowder, and oolong tea under their charitable brand “Equality Tea.” Yet the history of tea is steeped in inequality, driven by colonialism, war, and appropriation. In her short film, Equality Tea, Sunwoo brews tea while drawing parallels between the fraught histories of the tea trade and the suffrage movement.
Created by Jaime Sunwoo.
Original score by Matt Chilton, based on a 1895 suffragist anthem by Augusta Gray Gunn.
Commissioned by Park Avenue Armory and The Laundromat Project for 100 Years | 100 Women.

Jaime Sunwoo is a Korean American multidisciplinary artist from Brooklyn, New York. She creates multimedia performances in galleries, theaters, and public spaces.

Tawanda Gona presents Skunk in Therapy

This newfound passion has led to being featured in the 2020 NewFilmmakers Festival and winning the First Time Filmmakers Sessions in August. While accolades are cool, his biggest pride and joy is being able to share his love of creating with all of us. Whether it be laughing at a joke, sharing a comic or thinking about the artistic meaning of a short, his goal is to have us entertained. Well his true goal is to one day meet Gucci Mane and Stone Cold Steve Austin in the same party, but for now, our entertainment is number one on his checklist.
