Camilla Nielsson
FRI 25 SEPT: 14:00 to 16:00
ECA, Cinema Space (above Wee Red Bar, follow signs from Main Entrance)

Join Camilla Nielsson for a free masterclass on crafting a remarkable character-driven story that hinges on obtaining unique, behind-the scenes access within a volatile political context. Her film The Democrats takes an inside look at negotiating teams in a unique film that maps the three-year process of the creation of a new constitution in Zimbabwe. Camilla will not just discuss the film, but will open up a dialogue about the importance of documentary filmmaking on a wider scale and the power it has to change lives.

You are encouraged to see Camilla Nielsson’s film The Democrats before attending the Masterclass if possible:

Come and get inspired! Anyone welcome!
