Livecast #1 Making For Sama

Livecast #1 Making For Sama

Covering conflict in the media can be very challenging. Compassion fatigue towards the media and their reporting on lasting conflicts unfortunately is a reality. People are often tired of the news coming from conflict areas and they have a hard time relating to the numerous victims. Last year the documentary For Sama made a huge impact and attracted a lot of attention and a large audience that got emotionally very affected by seeing the film. In this livecast we will talk with journalist Fréderieke Geerdink and For Sama creators Edward Watts and Waad al-Kateab about narrative techniques in their award winning documentary and their benefit in reporting on war and conflict. Watch from your own comfy sofa on October 6th 8.30 pm!
