GIRL TALK: A Short Film by Kristy Choi

I was given the assignment of creating a silent film for class. Thinking about silence got me thinking about space– namely the question of who gets to talk and who gets forced into silence.This piece, Girl Talk, is about one girl’s journey in witnessing the gendered dynamics of space and figuring out for herself how she has agency in changing her environment. In many ways this piece is a tribute to the time in my life when I was getting politicized through feminism for the first time: when I was just beginning to be able to examine people and spaces with the critical context of so many women, activists, and scholars before me and feeling very viscerally a new form of self-empowerment through this paradigm shift.
