NBCNews featured Kaur Films and our documentary Drawn Together- Comics, Diversity and stereotypes on their website today. We made it to their front page.
Here is an excerpt from the page:
Do you ever wonder how stereotypes propagate? That’s the question filmmaker Harleen Singh wants to answer with her new film, “Drawn Together- Comics, Diversity and stereotypes.” The documentary, which started its crowdfunding campaign this week and has already broken 80 percent of its goal, will examine racial and gender stereotypes through comic books.
“Comics are an excellent lens on the society,” Singh told NBC News. “They incorporate storylines that reflect the times, but they also propagate stereotypes for their super heroes. It’s the perfect back drop for getting the message across about how generalization is not the best thing.”
