New Focus will creatively direct their very own short documentary Girl Power. This imaginative film will coincide with our major new exhibition Being Inbetween. Girl Power will focus on sharing the hopes, fears and aspirations of three young girls from Bradford who were aged ten to twelve when their portrait was taken for Being Inbetween.
Made over a period of 6 years, Being Inbetween by Carolyn Mendelsohn is a series of powerful photographic portraits of girls aged between ten and twelve, exploring the complex transition between childhood and young adulthood. With many portraits, never-before exhibited, this is the most extensive exhibition of the series to date.
The three Bradford girls will proudly pose for the camera and tell us about their hopes for the future. This will be the first time they have shared their experiences of being part of Being Inbetween an award winning photographic project.
New Focus have chosen to interview Amaira, Alice and Kiara due to their passion for anti-racism, equality and saving the environment. New Focus hope this film will inspire other young girls to take the stage and share their hopes for the future.
Girl Power will be launched as part of the official online exhibition premier of Being Inbetween on Saturday 9 January.
Girl Power is funded by Bradford Council, Bradford UNESCO City of Film and Bradford 2025 as part of their Make Film programme, and supported by Arts Council England.
