London School of Economics and Political Science: Screening of ‘Volviendo a Vivir’.

Research presentation and screening of co-produced film with Q&A and including women participants and whole research team.

The film was produced by an innovative remote participatory video research design by using women’s smartphones for filming. Over a period of 10 months, a team of researchers and filmmakers in the UK and Colombia, and the 24 directors, met in weekly online workshops to train women in filming techniques, review and discuss film material and make editorial decisions. In this session we will show the film followed by a Q&A with the research team and women directors.
