Have you ever felt that the world only sees you as sliver of who you really are? In this performance art piece, Ingrid Rogers, as a woman of color, expresses her desire to be fully seen and heard. LIBERATE is a call to action to step into your light and create unapologetically.
About Ingrid Rogers

From there she went on to work with such acclaimed directors as, Woody Allen, Joel Schumacher and Brian DePalma who directed her in her starring role opposite Al Pacino and Sean Penn in “Carlito’s Way”.

Kaia Lavender’s film career started in South Africa when she directed a documentary about the famous controversial choreographer Robin Orlin, closely thereafter moving into editorial on South African television shows.
As a director, with her stylistic realism, Kaia has tapped into her ‘car fanatic’ family roots, most recent directing national TV and online campaigns for Ram Trucks. This has pushed her to prominence as a sought after female director for car commercials and online content.
Kaia’s work in directing and producing spans award-winning independent films, TV interactive/transmedia projects and commercials featuring fashion to motorcycles. She has worked with executive producers Deepak Nayar (Bend It Like Beckham), Conrad Riggs (Survivor, Apprentice, Amazon) and Robert Lawrence (Clueless).
