"I Can't Breathe" is a visual representation of the demonization of African Americans in society and our concurrent feelings of suffocation in a world that doesn't acknowledge our voice. This song was written in honor of Eric Garner who was killed by a police officer using an illegal choke hold.
Here's a behind the scenes shot of Contagion's own production, "The Light". This short film was a submission to the 73 Hour Film Festival hosted by NAU. Nouhoum was the Director of Photography for this project.
