A short film by Geoffrey Chuah
Surf And Turf
If you have been around long enough, you will know that certain industries have a battle with the sexes. What I mean by this is who is trying to be better than the other, whilst we are making an effort to leverage the status of woman in general.
Or are we not trying hard enough.
Some industries have tried to equalize woman. An example of that is Marvel and Disney, hiring woman as there leads over the white male actor. We can debate about that for hours but for now this blurb is about why woman are not made to be equal as men.
I think for one, way back before any of this came to light the stereo type of all woman should be in the kitchen is something of the past and if you ever brought that up in a conversation then god help you.
But who is making the effort to make woman equal? It starts with the high-powered people from the top, doesn’t it? Or the ones that have the authority to promote and make the decisions that can make woman more equal. This has been happening the last 6-8 years but, I don’t think it is happening enough. We are seeing coloured people gain more opportunities in the work sector in high-profile industries such as in the film and music, which in turn has liberated the world we live in but is that enough? Or more to the point is that going to make society in general change so we can live in a better world? Maybe, but it doesn’t look like it will happen anytime soon, in my opinion it is about the mindset of the person that will make a difference to if and when this will happen.
All of this is food for thought.
But for now enjoy “Surf and Turf” Geoffrey Chuah’s new short film, all footage was taken from Edit Fest competition that he entered a couple of months ago.
