My short films are about bringing different cultures, viewpoints and moments in history together. Because it's only when we can bring different perspectives together when we can see just how connected we are. I've brought Muslim-American children together with Japanese-American incarceration camp survivors to read the letters of children who were incarcerated during World War II. I've used a Langston Hughes poem from 1938 - "Kids Who Die" - and paired it with modern images of Black Lives Matter. With Art Matters, I hope to create a short film bringing together different moments in the Women's Rights movement to culminate in the fight we are in.
