Statement

I am Jia Song, I graduated from China Academy of Art and East China Normal University in China, and now I am studying for my second master’s degree at Birmingham City University.

Because of the Coronavirus, people stayed at home to fight against it. During the lockdown, there was a “Black Lives Matter “ protest held in Birmingham. I thus clipped the scenes of Birmingham city and the protest together. And I extracted Boris Johnson’s original words in the speech to the beginning of the video. I hope when you see my work, you will not only think about the pandemic, but also human rights and equality.
