I AM HISTORY (2017)

I am history offers the opportunity to young unaccompanied refugees in Sweden to engage in different recreational and dynamic activities such as yoga, dance, sports and painting during summer break. The project then continues into offering the participants the possibility to plan, write and direct their own stories for film in close collaboration with a skilled and professional film team. Young people express themselves sharing experiences, dreams and thoughts communicating through  images, sound and music.

This audiovisual production aims to create an essential platform for dialogue, reflection and understanding and a valuable meeting point between young people regardless of their ethnic origins. The young creators will also travel, present and promote their work at schools, organizations and film festivals.
