Now more than ever, it is important for women of color and of the Diaspora to create space for our voices and art to be uplifted, viewed and heard. It is crucial for us, as daughters of Diaspora to turn the male gaze theory on its ear and to exemplify the possibilities of us telling our own stories. This Feminist Film Festival provides a platform for the necessary conversations around the intersections of oppression and the ways it manifest in how we show and tell our Herstories. Liberation is our Politics and Love is our Ethic. Through the creation of Layered Gaze Film Festival we are shifting the narrative away from the standard notion of what is gazable – from the exoticification of women of color to added layers of class, sexual orientation, gender identity, etc. Continuing to break the chains that oppress us. Join us for an evening of celebration and love.
