Video Edit

The chosen topic for this final year project explores the intersectionality within representations of people of colour in the media and how people working behind the scenes in the entertainment industry often do not reflect the diversity and inclusivity they represent on screen. The first part of the video edit focuses on the Filipinx discourse in which Filipinos living in the Philippines and the Filipino diaspora debate about whether the term is a ‘more inclusive’ representation of people with origins in the Philippines. The main theme of this video edit focuses on postcolonial theory and the writings of the postcolonial theorists, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak and Edward Wadie Said.
