Video as a ‘communication tool’

In this project, the video was used as a communication tool with family members and P’Sorn in the initial stage, and then with others beyond the household.  By showing the video to the P’Sorn, I was able to relay my feelings to P’Sorn, as well as eliciting a meaninful response from her to better understand her point of view.  In showing the film to the family, we were able to discuss more difficult issues with more ease. As I began to open the film to those beyond the field, my perspectives widened as the crowd reflected on different themes that surfaced from the video.
 Through the process, I am able to grasp a better understanding of my position not only in the household, but my place in the ‘world’.
