You are cordially invited to the premiere screening of 7UP, a series of short films made by 6 young girls from Dhaka, along with screening of a series of animated shorts exploring the issues of access to birth certificates made by the children of the Nagorik Project. The inspiration for these projects stems from Lal Beguni Shwapno, working closely LEEDO, a street children’s charity based in Dhaka, the film project focused on a process of training the children to develop storyboards, direct and shoot the film using HD cameras.
7UP continues as part of Paraa’s Cycle of Care project, in collaboration with LEEDO, Openvizor, Rainbow Collective and Sajida Foundation, the children became directors and narrators of their stories in Maniknagar, Dhaka. The children focused on issues ranging from women playing games, to the fear and burden of walls, and overcoming them. The diverse range of short films present a wonderfully crisp and alternative understanding of life from the girls. This event is supported by the EMK Centre.
