October 4th, from 12 p.m. till 4 p.m.
Address: Contemporary Art Center, Vokiečių str. 2, Vilnius
First part: “Burma Storybook” screening. More about the film here.
Second part: discussion on the creative storytelling challenges of filming in Myanmar during its time of transition from dictatorship. The filmmakers will discuss how they selected poetry and dissident poets as the focus of their film, and how they combined Cinéma-vérité storytelling with poetry. Petr Lom and Corinne Van Egeraat will analyse their theory that Cinéma-vérité is a form or poetry in daily life.
Third part: focus on the outreach and impact campaign that was created around the film: publishing a photography and poetry book with one of the most famous photographers in Europe to accompany the film; distributing a low-budget Burmese language only version of the book in Myanmar, and how free screenings were conducted of the film in Myanmar, reaching 50 000 viewers. And of course, filmmakers will also tell you about fundraising through Kickstarter.
