We were on a weekend long retreat with our UCLA student organization, SANAA when we got the chance to watch A Lot Like You and engage in a workshop after.
People who I had known for a while were telling me the stories of their roots that I had never heard before. The film kept being brought up that whole weekend – who are we, what stories do we create, how do we affect those around us with our stories?
It served as an excellent springboard to jump into further sessions about our own identities and how to use art to send positive messages.
Thank you for creating a film that everyone – black, white, asian, professionals, students, male, female – can relate to.
