The intensive mobile filmmaking workshop, the first of its kind in Koyra, provided the opportunity for participants from the Munda community to “understand and appreciate the process of telling their stories with a smartphone.” Besides that, through this workshop, they gathered the basic knowledge of filmmaking, which will help them find their voice on a broader scale. At the closing event, each participant has showcased their films in front of the audience. The films vividly displayed their everyday lives- struggles for survival fighting against nature.
The closing ceremony of the ‘CDST Filmmaking Workshop with Munda Community, Koyra 2021’ was held on Thursday, 11 November. ULAB’s MSJ Department Head Dr Jude William Genilo and project researcher Angelos Theocharis from Durham University thanked the participants.
