@paigepolk: Why did you decide to get in

@paigepolk: Why did you decide to get into this industry? I never set out to focus on film. I studied anthropology in school, thinking I was going to be a museum curator. But I was naturally drawn to film because it’s a way to tell stories while building a community of your own. Since my first job at an installation art gallery, my work has always involved community interaction. But while living in Lima, Peru I got my introduction to community organizing and started blending that work with media. I documented an oral history of Afro-Peruana elders. The next step was picking up a camera, then I started making my own film projects…and never stopped.
