KC Taylor, Director of A Mother's Cry.
As the first Puerto Rican Muslim woman to own a Media company in Newark New Jersey, I am interested in all forms of media. I believe that by blending different forms of art such as audio, and visuals in storytelling I can create a more powerful piece, rather than using one art form alone.
Each project I make is different, and I've found that each person takes something different with them. Our current culture, and generation, are prone to listening to video media rather than sitting and reading.
Before I made “A Mothers Cry, my first documentary, I saw other interviews and documentaries based on the same stories, but never from the mother's perspective or a particular community.
I am very excited that our films can become a way to empower women to share their stories. Stories that would resonate with every woman all around the world. I feel passionate about the community I live in and my hope is to inspire other women to serve as a power of examples for all to follow. Not only do I want to inspire but I also want to bring awareness across the United States and worldwide.
