The film is a direct reflection of how strongly I feel about the issue of systemic racism and
was spearheaded by the truly tragic murder of George Floyd. The film features appearances
from some of my friends and family from not only different cultural and ethnic backgrounds
but also from different parts of the world, with the aim of showing that it is possible to be
unified as one race, the human race, and come together no matter where we may be from,
to fight and unite against racism. The film was directed, voiced, and edited by me, with the
gestures from each featured person aligning with the rest to symbolise our togetherness
and collectiveness against the issue of racism, and to also show that no matter the colour of
your skin, where you may be from or the beliefs you may hold, racism is NOT acceptable
and is a battle that can only be won as one.
