Description

As the final project, a “Time-Based Communication” class was assigned to make a short video that reflected what the students had learned. Parisa created a film that communicates the highlights, struggles and misconceptions of what it means to be a female athlete in what tends to be a male-dominated domain. The goal was to remind female viewers that gender does not define what they can and cannot achieve. For male viewers, the goal was to provoke them to reevaluate how they perceive female ability and strength. The documentary-style video interviews three female athletes, all of whom compete in male-dominated sports.

 

Judge's Comments

Timely, effective and deeply personal. This micro-documentary weaves three unique narratives together cleanly and creatively to build an irrefutable statement about empowerment that is emotionally tender and visually compelling.
