About this submission
This film was made in a time of chaos. "Amidst the Ashes, There are Flames" is a short documentary that was made as a final project for a summer documentary class at NYU. It covers topics the black community has been trying to expose for centuries. I wanted to make this to allow people outside of the community to hear opinions from a range of people that we don't often get to hear from in these trying times. I am so grateful that I get to use my craft as a way to speak out against what's been going on.
