Birthday Smash is a satirical short fashion film which aims to identify and question some of the stereotypes that come with aging and being a middle age woman in the Western media and fashion industry. The film is a collaboration with the British brand Sabinna and is meant to ridicule the stereotypes and show middle-age women in a celebratory light.

Birthday Smash was written and produced by me!
