The Great Debate: Developing World Challenges

One day workshop focusing on controversial documentaries: Keeping Africa Small and I'm A Subsistence Farmer... Get Me Out Of Here!

One day workshop organised by The Great Debate and WORLDwrite. The workshop will focus on two new documentaries made by Chew On It Productions: Keeping Africa Small and I'm A Subsistence Farmer... Get Me Out Of Here! This challenging, exciting event will examine the issues raised by the films and provide an opportunity to learn about documentary making.

In session 1 the crew who made the documentaries will share top tips on no to low budget broadcast quality production, discussing how and why they made the films. Sessions 2 and 3 will open with a showing of a half hour documentary followed by a debate. A panel including one of the film makers will discuss issues raised by the film and the audience will be given plenty of opportunity to ask questions and make points from the floor.

Come along, hear the arguments and have your say
