This film is a short piece I produced on behalf of the British charity Art Refuge UK. The charity works with refugee children and young people from Tibet. The charity provides a much needed space for them to play and undertake art activities while they are in transit in Nepal and India.
The project was really rewarding and I engaged a group of young refugees in making the film which they really enjoyed doing.
Please watch the video to learn more about their work and visit their website to find out more about their activities here in the UK. If you would like to learn more about why Tibetans flee to India click here.
In June I travelled to Nepal and India in order to film a documentary for my final project for my MA in International Journalism. You will already have seen the montage of shots from Nepal and the trailer for the final documentary. Now you can see a montage of other shots from my time in India.
It was a fascinating trip to the north of India – Dharamsala, which really appears to be a ‘mini Tibet’ – a unique area where a group of people have set up their own base in another country in order to retain it’s language and culture.
This summer I produced a documentary on Tibetan refugees who have fled to India to escape Chinese repression. In the past three years 55 Tibetans have used the extreme self-immolation method of protest, 54 have taken place in the last year. This situation is incredibly sensitive. I managed to gain access to meet and spend time with new arrival refugees in India where I heard accounts and saw painting which depict what life was like inside Tibet.
This is the trailer for the 20-minute documentary. The project gained me a distinction in my MA in International Journalism.
In June I travelled to Nepal and India in order to film a documentary for my final project for my MA in International Journalism. The way the story went it was primarily shot in India but as I had taken some nice footage it seemed a waste to just leave it hidden in final cut pro! So I have put together a short montage video with some of the nicest shots from this part of the trip. Enjoy!
