Flavia Borges  is an Afro-Brazilian screenwriter & storyteller⁣ based in Chicago. Her work is entirely informed by the female experience, where women’s stories take front and center. 


She came to me with a very special request half-way through 2020. A newsletter, aiming to bring her community closer to her creative process in a very intimate way. A delicate approach to exposing her thoughts and feelings.

The result is Freedom Papers, a monthly themed newsletter divided into an opening reflection, African proverbs, highlight to Black women, personal recommendation of movies, books, podcast, and a playlist. We recently also started making available illustrations made by me for download in each month.
