What kind of film would YOU make about migration?
Family-friendly workshop, UNESCO RILA Spring School 2022: The Arts of Integrating

We are surrounded by different popular depictions of migration, from the films we watch to discussions on social networks and the photographs we see in broadcast media. All of them shape our understanding of what it is like to be displaced and have to travel elsewhere to make a new home.

This workshop will focus on the role that films play in mediating our understanding of migration, and it will give participants the chance to experiment with different ways of narrating migration themselves, by working together to write a screen play for a film featuring a story of migration. The aim is to explore the complex feedback loop between narrative and reality, whereby the stories we share do not just reflect the world we live in but shape how we think, feel and behave.
