We Are Visual by FORUM 16 at the American Corner Bitola

As part of its (ST)ART Program, which promotes human rights through arts, FORUM 16 has begun to use the “WeAreVisual Human Rights Audiovisual Toolkit” prepared by MakeDox. This toolkit is a teaching manual for the formal and non-formal educators of youths aged 12-18, and its aim is to promote human rights education by using documentary film.

FORUM 16 has previously cooperated with the American Corner Bitola and chose to continue our collaboration by co-producing movie nights with interactive sessions and discussion of the toolkit’s short documentary, which address different social or economic human rights. The movie nights were held on Fridays at 18:00 during February andMarch 2017.

The following documentary movies that were screened:

“A Brief History of JonhBaldessari” USA / 2012 / 6’ Directors: Henry Joost& Ariel Schulman

“TulibuDibuDouchoo” Bulgaria / 2008 / 4’ Director: Boris Despodov

“Drona and Me” The Netherlands / 2009 / 19’ Director: Catherine van Campen

“My Name Is Feker” Ethiopia / 2011 / 13’Director: Orlando von Einsiedel

“Wright’s Law” USA / 2012 / 12’Director: Zack Conkle

“The Shutdown” Scotland / 2009 / 10’Director: Adam Stafford

We are now considering whether to extend the program, and invite comments from interested persons regarding the best times for sessions to be held. Those interested can write to us at contact@forum16.eu to share their ideas.
