Fragments is a short film which documents a young girl’s journey to understanding her biracial identity, broken home and the effects this has on her.
Fragments was created due to my experiences growing up being the only mixed child in both my white British and Nigerian families. Growing up as a mixed person in a separated family is a hard thing. As you grow up thinking one way because you were never told any differently.
Throughout my life, I have always been interested in the duality of identity and culture. Especially, due to the way mixed people and I have often split ourselves into different people to fit into both cultures. As I could never be one whole person in the world, I always broke myself apart.
This film was created to introduce audiences to a marginalised group in film, who aren’t considered as one. There is a hope that this film could inspire others to understand that no matter who doesn’t accept you, there is a place for people like us who don’t fit in.
