Cutting, a difficult form of self mutilation….was that something we saw on the arms of Robin Williams? And, self mutilation…is an expression of what exactly, self love, its hard to say. Tchaiko Omawale, a citizen of the world, having lived in seven countries before coming to New york City, is the and the ‘inspiration’ for this short film. Omawale hid her secrets of self mutilation for years. They took many forms, the most visible being ‘cutting’. People suffer in silence. Tchaiko Omawale gives voice and ‘light’ to this suffering with this award winning short film: Solace.
