Stories Can Change the World: The Power of Perception in Reframing our Collective Narrative
Mentor: Dr. Fei Shi
My Question “How can Stories Reconcile?” provided me with an avenue to explore the power of story and perception in reframing collective narratives that keep us paralyzed, unable to change ourselves and the world. We are living in a time of urgency, and profound opportunity, so the stories we choose to fuel are of utmost importance. Through the avenue of documentary film, I present a “teaser” of my current film project in collaboration with the Achuar people of the Ecuadorian Amazon, about the need to transform our damaging perceptions and stories in order to choose a collective story of regeneration and collaboration.
