Sara Fattahi | Director Masterclass, with Scottish Documentary Institute *CANCELLED*

Please note: unfortunately Sara Fattahi is unable to travel to Glasgow and this event has been cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience and are hopeful that this event will be rescheduled in the near future.

Document is proud to host the latest in a series of masterclasses presented by Scottish Documentary Institute, allowing audiences to learn from world class filmmakers as they discuss their practice. This year, we’re joined by Sara Fattahi, director of Chaos – the second film in a trilogy that centres the experiences of women and their relationship to conflict, exile and trauma.

Fattahi’s first feature length documentary Coma (2015) was granted the Regard Neuf Award for the Best First Feature Film at Visions du Réel 2015, and the FIPRESCI Award at the Viennale 2015. Chaos was awarded the Pardo d’oro Cineasti del presente at Locarno 2018.

Co-creative Filmmaking – Process, Representation and Ethics

Participatory filmmaking is widely recognised as a method of engaging communities, building confidence, teaching skills and giving voice. Taking a co-creative approach frames people not only as contributors but as influencers, intrinsic to creating authentic collaborative content. In this workshop we will explore the role of filmmaker, contributors and co-creators through the production process of 2 short films: We Journey Together (2017), a short film depicting the story of 4 people and their experience in the asylum process in Scotland and You Play Your Part (2011), charts the experiences of campaigning women on Clydeside, from the Rent Strikes of 1915 to the Campaign for Equal Pay and the Upper Clyde Shipyards work-in.

The workshop, led by Plantation Productions, will feature discussion with Moya Crowley, Creative Director, Chris McGill, freelance filmmaker and Dr. Kirsten MacLeod, filmmaker and Associate Professor at Edinburgh Napier University.
