What is their why?

“I made this film as a form of processing. I was mostly trying to understand to make sense of myself and what I was going through. In the process of this I realized this film could be used as a tool for so many folks who may be going through the same thing.”

Azzan Quick (he/they) is a filmmaker, photographer, and visual artist based out of Durham, NC, a graduate of North Carolina Central University, and a certificate recipient at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. Quick focuses his creative abilities to tell stories mainly surrounding the LGBTQIA+ community as well as the stories of people of color.
