Number of participants: min. 3 / max. 8
While a documentary film should accurately present reality, how can an author's point of view also be expressed? This workshop aims to analyze and explore point of view in documentary filmmaking, as well as what separates documentary work from all journalistic reporting. Various film examples will be screened and discussed in order to help participants reflect on their own filmmaking projects.
