The workshop "Cinema"
The idea is to make a fast production of small videos with the film
documentary students. They can be documentary or more artistic representations,
in and with the local community.
In that connection we would like to introduce the idea of "Dérive"
a situationist concept described by Guy Debord in 1958. as a method
to discover a chosen locality.
And then to create a new meeting point, which can be initiated as
a local “Cinema “ project between the students in Dar
al-Kalima College and the different audiences in the community. I
can be a small shed for temporary use or a mobile unit. And to make
a presentation of the video production of the workshop there as a
public event. Since there are many localities in Bethlehem this will
be the first experimenting Cinema or the whole project could be made
It raises the question of who are the primary audience, and how to
attract a bigger audience, production of posters, flyers and so on.
