Writer and Stylist: Parker Blackburn
From the Stylist: In order to display the importance of this conversation about inclusivity in film, we decided to take 3 iconic cult classic films that have a white cast, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bruller, and Mean Girls, and replace their characters with a group of diverse students at UofSC. How might have these plotlines and stories been richer if there was more representation in film earlier, as well as address how much farther we still must go in terms of inclusivity. Most of the clothes from this shoot are thrifted, as I really wanted emulate the feeling of the original costumes while also adding a modern element to it.
