Of course it is no accident moravia video lab is a workshop for women, run by women. But these are girls of 12 to 18 or older so we are trying to be non didactic but at the same time highlight positive examples of women in the girls lives and reflect on them for a little while. With this in mind, we went on location with the girls so that they could film each other responding to the question “who is the woman you most admire and why?”.
Zarahi chose Frida Kahlo
This time instead of the more guerilla style filming on location with mini flip video cameras in hand, they used a tripod and conventional video camera to get the feel of a more professional practice.
Yenifer chose her sister Carla
Katherine chose her mum
It is incredibly hard to film in Moravia, silence simply does not EXIST!! We did battle with trucks, hammers, street vendors, loud speakers, children, planes, music…EVERYTHING…
However with a little patience we found a few moments of calm in which to shoot. The girls used tripod and video and the results are really great, the women they chose ranged from their mums and neighbours, to psychologists, political activists, artists and actresses…Right now the films are in Spanish, will subtitle asap…
