AFFURMATIVE ACTION

Travis Wood

This film explores "meet the team" pages at a variety of different media companies. Every team has a diverse representation of dogs but no black people. AFFURMATIVE ACTION seeks to ask the question "how far have we come?"

I couldn’t help but notice the lack of Black representation on company rosters already, but this short opened my eyes up to a whole other problem. Great job on calling out those who put the Humane Society before HUMAN society. — Natasha Lewin (Programmer)
