2015 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Carman will create The Philadelphia Radical Film Collective (PRFC), an organization that seeks to use filmmaking as praxis to fight oppression and mainstream media narratives. Striving to create film that is by and for women, people of color, and queer communities, PRFC will offer free screenings and filmmaking workshops. In addition, PRFC plans to create a Cop Watch program in Philadelphia to help fight back against police brutality and misconduct by filming police to capture evidence and as an act of de-escalation. Racial justice is of utmost importance to Carman’s project and her goal is to use film both artistically and politically to socially disempower the current criminal justice system and educate people of the injustice committed against communities of color.
