About this submission

Akong Sala is an exploration of my life as 25 year old genderqueer person in a household that is made up of a range of generations, citizenship statuses, races, ethnicities, and socioeconomic levels. In this short home video, I reflect on my white sister’s use of ebonics, on the way I am able to move around as a masculine presenting person in a patriarchal household, on how technology brings my sisters together while separating me from them, on how wealth shapes our interactions, and how all of these tensions settle in the living room between me and my sisters.
