ENMITY: A Love Story
This project was conceived out of my love for fight and action sequences in film and the lack of believable female fighters in leading roles. Hollywood has neglected the portrayal of strong women without reducing them to fetish, using clichéd “sexy fighting,” poor combat skills or a lack of emotional detachment resulting in their death, hence, appeasing the patriarchal psyche. Enmity is a tongue-in-cheek allegory of this bias.
