Exploring the constraints of motherhood, "Didn't Know Better," Queen Frequency's third music video, dissects the domestic demands that are expected of women across time. Lyrically, the song's storyline is based off of a turn-of-the-century feminist novel "The Awakening" by Kate Chopin. Shot on Super 16mm and Super 8mm film.
