A veteran of independent film and video, Davis has produced numerous award winning works.

Her latest work, a dramatic feature film entitled Compensation uses silent cinema techniques to portray two inter-related love stories that offer a view of Black Deaf culture. Her interests include altering and diversifying the terrain of mass media, film history, world cinema and folklore. She frequently writes and lectures on African and African American cinema.
