The World Through Our Eyes Synopsis

In the making of our film, “The World Through Our Eyes”, we discovered how society’s standards serve to obscure our identities. We wanted to define systems of oppression through the lens of a culture web, and express our separate identities as young women of color from different marginalized groups.
