This new video work explores feminism, Indigenous issues and the changing role of young women within today’s society through the mechanism of rap. Through densely loaded visuals Brontë explores an alternate universe where the governing body is comprised of strong women all from diverse ethnicity, demographics and ages, inviting audiences to expand their dreams and visions of what the future can hold. The Prime Minister is an Indigenous female; proud and fluent in her traditional language, leader of the new world. Through politically charged, fierce feminist rap the new government shall address the people.
