OUTLAWS

‘In a world that is constantly in flux and a society that constructs power structures as a way to control life’s natural chaos, the most powerful magical spell is unashamed, unabashed authenticity to self.’ – Kyle Bxshxff ‘OUTLAWS’ was born from a conviction that this authenticity that Bxshxff speaks of, needs to be shared with the world, and that ‘the new, the next and the now’ needs to be confrontationally lived through expression. Alongside the script written by Kyle Bxshxff, shot by our own Patrick Spilsbury and directed by Dillon Buirski, in partnership with Chrisna de Bruyn, and curated by Gregory Russil, we also produced a Q&A sit-down with some of the artists, who shared their bravery and opened up about their experiences being queer.

“In a world that is constantly in flux and a society that constructs power structures as a way to control life’s natural chaos, the most powerful magical spell is unashamed, unabashed authenticity to self.” – Kyle Bxshxff

The film ‘OUTLAWS’ was born from a conviction that this authenticity that Kyle Bxshxff speaks of, needs to be shared with the world, and that ‘the new, the next and the now’ needs to be confrontationally lived through expression. As part of this exploration of authenticity, the WE ARE CREATIVE production team from Cape Town, as well as their very own creatives jumped at the idea of bringing this one to life. The collaboration between these teams, as well as AFRICA IS NOW magazine and Cape Town’s LGBTQIA+ community resulted in a colorful celebration of the creativity they all have to offer as a whole. “We could not have been prouder of the opportunity to help tell these stories, and it has been an honor to work alongside every person who invested so much to make sure these stories are heard and seen.” says Dillon BUIRSKI c/o WE ARE CREATIVE.

The film roars with a soundtrack from Queezy, and performer Chester Martinez led the movement direction. Both artists also feature alongside other proudly queer models Olivia Sang, Chad-Lee van Wyk, Michelle Drake, Ramsey Lewis, Jeremy Pelser, and Fernando Denté. The brilliant Michael Oliver Love also jumped on board and delivered photography that reflects an unmatched sensitivity and celebration of the emotional essence.

Besides the script written by Kyle Bxshxff, the film was shot by Patrick SPILSBURY c/o WE ARE CREATIVE and directed by Dillon BUIRSKI c/o WE ARE CREATIVE, in partnership with Chrisna de Bruyn, and curated by Gregory Russil. They also produced a Q&A sit-down with some of the artists, who shared their bravery and opened up about their experiences being queer.
