In this opportunity, Ahmed Moh Lamin, a student from the first cohort at the EFA Abidin Kaid Saleh school of cinema, in Sahrawi camps, and Richard Robinns, director of the 2008 Oscar-nominated documentary Operation Homecoming: Writing the Wartime Experience will hold a workshop based on their professional and personal experiences.

The lecture focuses on how to use audiovisual language to tell a story: how do we go about touching stories? What is a narration point of view? What are the tools we can resort to? Those would be some of the questions asked. Our hosts will share the search each one of them embarks on when developing their work, which will help both children and youngsters reflect on what interests them and how to experience it and take it to the screen.
