Blacknews Video Action Workshop
Now there are video-cams and making films is no longer
a privilige. It is time for the oppressed to form the
visual-memory storage of their own struggles, to shoot
their own documentaries, to reflect their own dreams
onto the white walls. It is late already for hand cams
at homes to become active agents in the struggle of
the oppressed. The city in Brasil erects screens in
its squares and shows latest "alternative" news from
all around the country. Anarchists in Denmark make a
weekly cable tv program to spread the voice of the
"underground". Anti-mining campaigners in Czech
Republic recorded their actions with video cam and
announced their campaign with these films. Dissidents
in Tibet recorded Chinese entering their lands and
took the films outside of the country. Human rights
groups in Kenya filmed evidences of torture and passed
the tapes for further investigation to legal
scientists. Anti-road activists in England recorded
police evicting them from tree houses and gave the
pictures to tv news. This Workshop Project aims to
discuss topics like what is video?, the difference
between video and cinema, cine-truth, man with a cam,
the history and aims of activist video, oral history,
the language of fiction, the connection of visual
action with social transformation and to share and
learn about video technology, use of cameras, and film
Finally, the aim of this is to make participitants
able to go on the streets to shoot their own pictures
and make their own films. The workshop will be
directed by Videa Audio Visual Research Assosciation
members Ulus Baker, Thomas Balkenhol and Ege
Berensel's contributions.
