Director Statement

XRE, the Extended Reality Ensemble, brings digital artists together with non-digital artists to foster international, interdisciplinary cultural works that transcend realities. The co-curating #MakeUsVisible team alongside XRE are rallying for a more gender inclusive world through Augmented Reality. And this is just the beginning of our story.

Director Biography

Maimuna Anika: “I directed this documentary for #MakeUsVisible with the hope to be a part of the journey where different groups of minorities are being remembered and recognized, and given the value they deserve. The project #MakeUsVisible is not only bringing the conversation of inclusivity, but is also bringing different means of new media like Augmented Reality. That is what made me excited to work for this documentary. While watching this film, I want the viewers to not only be informed about the project, but also think about their own city’s sculptural landscape and get involved in the conversation of inclusivity.”
