Kinfolk: [kin-fōk] noun. A person’s blood relations, regarded collectively.
Conceived in the murky swamps of Southern Louisiana and the fertile cotton fields of Arkansas, gestated under the gloomy skies of London and the white sands of Cannes, Kinfolk Collective was birthed inside a smoke filled hookah lounge deep in the concrete tundra of Chicago.
With our cinematic lens, we trace the overlaps and commonalities between members of the African diaspora.
At Kinfolk, we don’t view people as commodities or as resources to exploit. We view them as family we welcome to our porch to join us as we exchange otherwise untold narratives.
We see ourselves as the poet laureates of the lowlives and the underrepresented.
