Experiment:

What happens when individuals from different walks of life get to know each other by bonding over shared talents and passion. Does this experience change the way they feel about people who are different then they are? Can they develop a friendship and respect with someone with strongly opposing views?

 

Goals

Sparked by the divisiveness prevalent in the world today, Squirrels Don’t Judge, is a documentary short that seeks to seeks to answer the fundamental questions of, “Are we more alike than we are different? And “Can we connect with people who are very different than us, by focusing on our similarities?”

The documentary follows Ehsan and Morgan as they get to know each other as humans first, who are both passionate about standup comedy. They use this shared interest to get to know each other. 

Ehsan and Morgan share how the experience is for them, what they learn about themselves and each other, and their hopes for a society that respects diversity and encourages inclusion.

 

I wish people can just see my heart and forget all the other stuff. If I act the way I should, I could just be accepted as another human.”
