UJJRP completed a 5-day filmmaking workshop for youth "OneMinutes Jr"

Admin 15/08/2016 973 News

On August 6, UJJRP completed a five day workshop for 18 youth who participate in the Attendance Centre programs in Zaporizhia, Melitopol and Ivano-Frankivsk during which they had an opportunity to make their own one minute documentary films. During the workshop professional film-makers worked with youth and helped them learn how to create their film scripts, use the video cameras, and do filming and editing.

The event was organized jointly with the State Penitentiary Service Department of Zaporizhia, co-sponsored by the Service for Children of Zaporizhia State Regional Administration and conducted by the trainers from the One Minute Jr Foundation (Netherlands). Some 18 youth films feature their stories in which they talk about their needs, challenges, interests, hopes and future plans.

Many of these stories help to ascertain and confront commonly held public attitudes and responses to youth in conflict with the law as they show personal youth experiences and feature aspects of their lives in which they may not have had enough support from adults, the system and their communities to help them refrain from committing an offence. The event was followed by the youth films presentation for their parents and relatives and a small award ceremony to recognize their effort and achievements during the workshop.

Here are some of the films that Youth made during OneMinutes Jr film-making workshop in Zaporizhia Oblast.
