Crossword – Loonies (Video)

Toronto emcee Crossword lets go of some Jeri Hilt-directed visuals to “Loonies”, an introspective record produced by Justunlimited.

“Filmed in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward, Lower Ninth Ward, and West Bank communities, Loonies is a multi-dimensional depiction of loss, trauma, reclamation, and freedom. From the levee view of the Mississippi River, to the bridge overlooking the man-made barrier of the canal, the movement, and spirit of the soul is like water, boundless and uncontainable. The African and Diasporic goods in the Oya market reflect the transformative nature of exchange. We are not for sale: we are the determinants of our own value, and the progenitors of radical art. Even in the aftermath of systemic disenfranchisement, Black New Orleans remains a mecca for radical liberation embedded in the eye of the storm.”
– Jeri Hilt
