"Words" is an exploration of identity and being oneself against the everchanging

backdrop of NYC.

Exploring the beautiful, historic and ever evolving landscape of America's busiest city, eight-teen diverse nationalities, backgrounds and personalities share how their stories break down the labels placed upon them. These New Yorker's are contextualized in a range of environments from the world of the arts to the NYPD; the legal field to the fashion industry. "Words" investigates the dissonance between self and socially constructed identities. This film features exclusive interviews from a variety of artists, activists, icons, and innovators, whom all are living their truth. “Words” dissects, deconstructs and pays powerful tribute to the language we use to shape the many facets of our identities as men, women, artists, New Yorkers, and most importantly humans.
