Miracle, Smoke and Dreams: Voices of young Turkmen filmmakers
Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, 25 May 2007
The following are a selection of videos made by young people from the National Institute of Culture and the Youth Organization of Turkmenistan during a week-long “One Minutes Jr Video” workshop organized by UNICEF and the Ministry of Culture and TV and Radio Broadcasting of Turkmenistan.
As can be seen in the powerful videos, participants gained a sense that their opinions and concerns do matter and that they have a right to voice them.
These films will later be launched at the National Children’s Forum dedicated to Child Protection Day and will also be broadcast on national TV.
UNICEF organizes “One Minutes Junior Video” workshops throughout the world in close partnership with the One Minutes Foundation and the European Cultural Foundation. In many parts of the world, One Minutes videos are broadcast on TV and used as a tool for social change.
