Believe In Zero, Make A Video 2014 Mock-up Camp

One Minutes Junior trainers Mr Chris Schuepp, Ms Vivian Wen Li Lin and Ms Judith Leysner coming from overseas, and local trainers David, Harry, Joe and SamAndy had the first experience of organizing Believe In Zero, Make A Video camp with 15 young boys from Hong Kong Juvenile Chan Nam Chong Memorial School, and Society of Boys’ Centres Chak Yan Centre School.

The five-day workshop not only built friendship between the trainers and the young people, but also let us hear the boys’ dreams, reasons and difficulties of studying in a boarding disciplinary school- like loneliness, missing family members, and eagerness for freedom, friendship. We also get to know some reasons of the behavioural problems, like family violence, bullying in schools, etc

Watch their one minute video stories here.

Filmmakers as young as 8 and from as far away as Sudan (and as close as our own backyard!), this collection showcases some of the best short films created by young women aged 18 & younger. Exploring everything from the hilarious to the heartbreaking to the sublime, all are a testament to the incredible talents of young women everywhere and several of these young filmmakers will be present to talk about their films, as will the coordinators of this program. Many of these shorts were made possible by youth programs dedicated to supporting young filmmakers and we are proud to showcase films from these fellow film lovers: Reel Girls, the European Cultural Foundation, Harvard-Westlake School, True/False Film Festival and UNICEF.

Home is a concept that is material, emotional and political. At the heart of the most recent economic collapse, the loss of homes became a major concern, not only from the perspective of people’s inabilityto secure shelter, but also in how within the context of the american dream losing a home became analogous to losing the promise of the capitalist might.

The lack of a home may be different than a lack of home; this series addresses the meaning of home and the definitions individuals, cities, nations and cultures work with when referring to such concept. Themes of displacement, (im)migration, uneven development, autonomous spaces, architecture and memory are recurring in the program.

In 2007 richtten Vivian Wenli Lin en Pooja Pant de stichting Voices of Women op. Afkomstig uit de Verenigde Staten en Nepal zijn ze nu woonachtig in Amsterdam. Beiden zijn al jaren actief op het gebied van mediakunst, feminisme, gender-issues en activisme.

Voices of Women ontstond met als insteek om de stigma’s die uiteenlopende vrouwelijke arbeiders omringen weg te nemen. Het is een organisatie in ontwikkeling. Na hun eerste project ‘Dissillusionment’ in 2007 waarin ze migrantenvrouwen de kans boden zelf te vertellen over hun bestaan en soms extreme werkomstandigheden zijn ze in 2010, met steun van Mama Cash, begonnen aan een uitgebreid en gelaagd nieuw project onder de noemer ‘A day in her life’.
