To contrast the phenomenon of catcalling, it is necessary to discuss and understand its impact on women's lives. Chiara Fiorani, Carlotta Ratti, and Andriy Laurora, students of Graphic Design course at IED Milano, are well aware of this fact.
They have chosen this very theme for their final project in the Digital Video course, creating an emotional-explainer video in motion graphics that aims to encourage a change in the mindset of anyone who witnesses or engages in street harassment. The video delves into the experiences of women who face verbal harassment on a daily basis.
Through a combination of compelling visuals and thought-provoking narration, the creators shed light on the emotional toll of catcalling and the detrimental effects it has on victims. By highlighting the perspectives and stories of these women, the video seeks to create empathy and understanding among its viewers. The power of motion graphics lies in its ability to convey complex messages in a concise and visually engaging manner. In this case, the creators have utilized this medium to not only raise awareness about catcalling but also to challenge societal norms and promote respect for women in public spaces.
By presenting a fresh perspective on the issue, this emotional-explainer video serves as a catalyst for change. It encourages viewers to reflect on their own behaviors and attitudes, fostering a collective responsibility to eliminate street harassment. Through education and empathy, the hope is that this video will contribute to a shift in the way society perceives and addresses catcalling, creating a safer and more inclusive environment for all.
