Our story our voice engages the diverse voices of the dis-empowered in a multi-cultural world that has no multi-culture voice. Beyond the mainstream media and politics of newspapers Our Story Our Voice offers a rare unbridled look into the voices of those who more often than not get marginalized. From nuclear weapons proliferation to the hypocrisy of western foreign policy, failure of plurality and democracy to the crisis in Darfur. Written by
It doesn't take much thinking to look at who controls media and the subsequent representation depicted in Hollywood, BBC, CNN etc. The rare question is never asked, whose voice do we keep hearing, and if that voice is the dominant race-class then what does the other voice sound likeaka the majority of people. These people don't have a voice, they are always on the other side of someone else stories. The "extreme" Muslim, the radical Blacks, the immigrants, The poor African, the oppressed woman. What story of the world would tell if they could only have the power to speak? This is what this film is about, that voice that whisper; muted, subdued, erased, marginalized. What notes would that voice make? what would be their concerns? What would be their vantage point if they not only spoke but spoke in dignity reaffirming terms via a vehicle or an agent of their choice? In our multicultural world multicultural is just a veneer of a monoculture domination this film exposes that without any apology. This is all this film is about, and it is interesting the richness contained in this simple premise of Our Story, with Our Voice.
