A 12-week virtual documentary filmmaking workshop, led by Gail Prensky, for emerging filmmakers in Juba, South Sudan. Each participants' films will be entered for the Juba Film Festival in December 2021.
Each week 10 emerging filmmakers in South Sudan virtually met over Zoom with their mentor, Gail Prensky, in the United States. The filmmakers shared and discussed the short documentary films they committed to produce over a 12-week period. Some days the poor Internet connection staggered audio and video and at other times electricity was down. Despite these challenges, the workshop participants prevailed. Here are highlights from this workshop series.
