A series of three films created over at Mixtape Club for HBO about the amazing Henrietta Lacks to promote the HBO original film. It was a pleasure researching the subject to help shed light on such an amazing person and topic. We used the works of Jacob Lawrence as inspiration. Both for their conceptual and aesthetic relevance to Henrietta's life.
