Why bother trying to match the world’s expectations when it’s lightyears more freeing to find and define ourselves with each step? Director Jumai Yusuf and animator Alexa Velasquez co-created a cinematic visual for India and The Jones’ latest release, Caught In The Middle, that recenters the hero’s journey from the typical white male hero to a Black woman.
Director Jumai Yusuf hopes to combine her love of science and art through film. She is passionate about genre filmmaking (sci-fi, fantasy, horror), and since she is a Muslim, Nigerian immigrant, she always strives to bring the stories and characters of underrepresented minorities to the screen. Her other interests include Producing, Production Design, and Animation.
