Because I was always taught that every film is political, to create a work of art, is to be politically engaged. Art is inherently subjective; therefore, all artists are making their opinions/beliefs known, and this, in and of itself, is political engagement. Apathy and ignorance are not means of a base to political engagement; so, it is also to be informed and educated on relevant topics. When one creates a work of art, one needs to be fully aware and informed on what they are trying to express.
