Be Steadwell’s film short “Vow of Silence” tells the story of Jade, a heartbroken composer who takes a vow of silence to win back the heart of Isis, her true love. In her struggle to reconnect with Isis, she meets Jaxson – an outgoing musician. Utilizing music, magic, and silence, Jade finds her voice in the place she least expects it. Vow of Silence is a music driven story, placing queer women of color at the center of the narrative. In her inability to speak, Jade communicates her pain, weakness, power, and joy through music. An original score by Be Steadwell and live music narrate Jade’s journey.
