A documentary film workshop, initiated by the Goethe Institute in Lagos, Nigeria.
Under the main theme of “Spirit & Spirituality”, the participating film students were to cooperate on short essayistic documentaries in which they would reflect upon there respective religions. The framework of the workshop (lectures and discussions) was also documented.
The resulting 45 minute collaborative documentary consists of two main personal essays and fragments of the workshop itself that reveal the heated discussions that could occur and the main setting of the workshop.
The workshop was held in 2 fortnight sessions, the second of which I conducted. I also contributed with additional camera work and final editing of the film.
