OneMinutesJr workshop in Bishkek - Day 4

by Chris Schuepp

BISHKEK, 27 February 2014 - On day 4 of the video workshop in Kyrgyzstan we continue the camera work with the participants and get the last seven films shot before we can focus fully on the editing process.

Just like yesterday, the first couple of films lead us to a local school in Bishkek. This time it is school #65 and the project "School without violence" is also implemented here. While one team produces a scripted video about peer-to-peer violence and mediation in the hall, another groups meets with the real student mediators of school #65.

The teenagers Andrey, Nursuluu and Nuradil show us around and explain what is being done to minimize violence of all forms at their school.

In the afternoon we have two more stops on the agenda: Osh Bazar, the main market in Bishkek, and the train station. On the market we film a story about child labour and the lack of education faced by some children here in Central Asia.

And action! Getting creative once again, this time on the market - UNICEF / Chris Schuepp / 2014

The final stop of the day before we go back to the workshop venue and start editing the films is the Bishkek train station. We are looking for a "паровоз", a locomotive. This is what the biggest bully is called in schools here in Kyrgyzstan. The "locomotive" is the one who pulls people into bullying others and he is also the one taking money from his victims. Ibragim (16) is acting in his own movie. He's trying to push the locomotive back, he doesn't want to give in.

And now we start editing - going to be a long night and a busy morning tomorrow. The presentation is scheduled for 3 pm Friday afternoon.
