Two short Films by Digital Media PhD student and Spellman College Professor Ayoka Chenzira "Hair Piece" and "Alma's Rainbow" will be shown March 28 at the 5th Annual Images of Black Women Film Festival in London.

"Hair Piece" offers an animated depiction of the antics performed by many black women in an effort to control their hair.

"Alma's Rainbow" is a hip urban sitcom with sepia-toned flashbacks. which recalls Spike Lee's first film, "She's Gotta Have It." The heart of the movie is the struggle between Alma and Ruby .
