: “i ask each and every person here today not to judge a director or a writer or an actor from the bame communities as being only qualified to direct, write and act in things that are stereotypically deemed to be culturally specific... i want you to see bame creatives the same way that you see white creatives. i want you to see female creatives in the same way you see male creatives. i want you to see people with disabilities as equals, as having societal and financial value. i want everyone here and beyond to have access to filmmaking without class or wealth being a barrier. our society feeds into our art. our art feeds in to society. we need to treat the creative arts as a blank canvas which everybody can paint on.” mr. #femioguns
