Kiara C. Jones

The daughter of a Bronx, Brooklyn love story, Kiara began her creative career as a poet and hip hop artist.  She transformed her love for storytelling into an award winning career in broadcast radio and television.  After traveling the world exploiting her talents on and off camera, she settled under the bright neon lights of Las Vegas producing live shows and events.  Kiara is happy to return to her roots in New York and plant herself in the fertile soil of New York University where she is embracing her next evolution as a filmmaker.

Director’s Statement

Can women really have it all? Career, motherhood, committed relationship, independence, sexuality, respect?  Women have made great advancements in breaking out of traditional roles and redefining our identity.  By taking on more traditionally male roles, are we missing out on some of the great pleasures of being a woman?  Are we becoming Amazing or Amazon... and is this evolution physically and mentally better for us than our former state?  Does this new strength and empowerment make us somehow less feminine?  My films seek to probe into these questions and open a dialogue that explores the current condition of womanhood.
