"No Child Left Behind"
This project aims to affect social change by engaging viewers through active processes of representation that seeks to encourage dialogue, raise awareness, and empower individuals around the topics of child development. I've incorporated people's stories alongside personal references to communicate the emotional undertone in each of these stories. By establishing trusting relationships with certain individuals, I have allowed them to comfortably talk with me about pressing issues in their lives. I search for a broader context that ultimately evokes a powerful yet somber message to my audience. My attempt is to speak about the importance of a child's connection to a family and seek to inspire personal reflection of what the entails.
