In the world of film-making, female directors are rather scarce. It’s easy to find a great actress, but all too often, men fill the role of director, and women get overlooked.

I think this video is important for people to see because it teaches us that you need to know yourself first before you develop prejudices and biases. It is also important because it shows that we all think we know what we are and what our genes hold, but unless you get a DNA test or have solid proof, chances are you are a mix of several different ethnicities and races. I was a bit shocked that people believed that they
