Using participatory video, Glocal Films runs various projects worldwide to promote a creative intercultural exchange between children from different countries. Take 2 gives children the opportunity to consider concepts of place and belonging, to share ideas about the worlds around them and to learn about themselves in relation to others. It creates an opportunity to embrace diversity through the increase of personal knowledge and the development of intercultural relationships.
These representations provide an alternative to mainstream media by dispelling myth and stereotype.
The Riedböhringen/Gulmit project was produced in 2006.
Participants: 9 to 11-year-old primary school children in a German village close to the Black Forest, and Gulmit, a village in the valley of Hunza in the Karakoram mountains in Pakistan.
