by Numa Perrier. 2019. 88 min.
In a cramped Las Vegas apartment, 19 year old Tiffany struggles to find her place. She enters a world of internet fetish cam girls in order to survive after her mother’s death. An unflinching and authentic portrait of poverty, womanhood, and blackness, JEZEBEL raises questions about agency and exploitation. Numa Perrier stars in this semi-autobiographical directorial debut.
