My vision – your reality

A Workshop on Anti-Racist Work in Documentary Film

This workshop debates the topic of racism in documentary film work. We would like to encourage self-reflection with the own work practice: how to reflect power relations and how to take responsibility for the people who give their stories and for those who receive them? Strategies for telling anti-discriminatory stories will be discussed and how one's own reflection can be considered for the overall development of the film. As an introduction, showing some best practice examples, the panel discussion Kill the documentary as we know it! will take place on Saturday afternoon.
