// Wapikoni mobile

The mentor filmmaker François Laurent and the Atikamekw filmmaker Marie-Pier Ottawa recently took off for Panama to give a two-week video training session.

In collaboration with the Panamanian instructor/filmmaker Anayansi Pardo, the workshops will be given to about fifteen participants from the Emberas and Kunas communities. From February 1 to 16, they will be initiated in documentary film techniques, a film genre that gives visibility and helps preserve culture. To bring down any prejudice between the different nations of this region, participants are encouraged to create a new form of expression that respects an intercultural aspect.

The logs of these training sessions will be online soon… Watch for them!
