► ALL FRUITS RIPE is an event series for BIPOC filmmakers (black, indigenous, people of colour) exploring LGBTQ* themes and topics.
The title originates from the Jamaican Patois expression meaning “all is well” and aims to highlight the powerful and impactful work of visual artists working across marginalised, socio-political intersections.
The sophomore event will take place on November 29th 2019 at be’kech. This follow-up is a solidarity night for Afro-German poet and interdisciplinary artist, Esther Heller. Donations from the night will go towards securing her school fees for her studies at Oxford University.
The night will feature a selection of films from three artists, exploring gender and bodily relationships to the moon, the importance of black communities, as well as a film on black queer relationships. The event will be followed by an artist talk moderated by ALL FRUITS RIPE founder, Candice Nembhard.
Esther Kondo is is a writer, poet, and experimental filmmaker. She was recently shortlisted for the Sawti Poetry Prize and is a Barbican Young Poet 18/19 alumni. Kondo is currently a Creative Writing undergraduate at Oxford University.

Moxn is a visual poem and surreal short film about body and Identity transformations of womxn guided by the cycles of the moon. Within a surreal space, the state of the body is never constant but constantly wanes and transforms. The title refers to the spelling of WOMXN, a more inclusive, progressive term that sheds light on prejudice and discrimination and institutional barriers womxn face but also includes trans women and women of colour.
