Natasha RamosI am a graduate student in the Anthropology of Peace and Human Rights department at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Film & Television from Savannah College of Art and Design and hope to produce documentaries ranging in topics from environmental to anthropological films. While my background is mostly in the arts, I believe art is a cornerstone of any society and it is through artistic expression and research we come to understand ourselves and other cultures. It is my hope to facilitate understanding of the self and culture through the moving image to promote peace human rights. Film has the power to reach a wide variety of audiences and the translation of scholarly publications to this medium will prove to be an effective method of making that information accessible.

I grew up in a family of immigrants and the tendency to adapt from one social setting to another was crucial in the establishment of relationships. Through this practice, commonalities between cultures became apparent and understanding became second nature. I believe it was my exposure to multiple cultures, which led to my passion for peace and human rights.
