We proudly present to you the five films we made during the IPP Screening Identity!
In CISV, human rights are this years main focus area. This IPP (International Peoples Project) wanted to use our freedom of speech, a human right, through films. The participants have explored how belonging is important for your perception of who you are, how the situation of migrants in Norway is, how differently a sentence with «I am» can end, and how easy it is to say «you are». We are proud to present the results of our 3 week workshop about identity and migration in Oslo!
I STILL CAN SMILE
Made by Nancy Smith, Madeleine Whalen and Dario Giuliati.
«I still can smile» is a film about the challenges to feel belonging in a group, and how it affects the way we look at our identities. Bullying is a universal problem, that specially affects people in a young age. We meet people with different stories about bullying, both the victims and also some of the bullies.
PARTS OF ME
Made by Mint Siranda, Viktoria Kisgergely, Tatiana Carvalho and Ashish Singh.
Parts of me is a mosaic of four different people, and the small things in their lives that makes out their personalities. Eventually, their different traits is what makes them connect.
Made by Miranda Pieron, Gábor Bencze and Shangar Hashemi.
Shaping Identity tells the story of two people who have migrated to Oslo, hoping it would improve their lives. One has fled because of political reasons and one has moved for the experience and opportunities.
BEHIND THE FRAME
Made by Michel Nowak, Kan Pensagow and Mila Gianni.
Behind the frame is a social experiment. The film was shot at Oslo´s opera house, where different people sat down behind a frame letting the people who pass by describe who they are. Can appearence alone be enough to understand who people are?
INTERNATIONAL PEOPLES IDENTITY
Made by Soňa Hlavová, Jonathon Haggardy and Julia Ribiero.
The film International Peoples Identity tells the story of our IPPs group, and what the different personalities think about their own identity. What shapes us? When placed in a group with 11 different nationalities trying to work together, we realise the differences, but more importantly, how similar we are to each other. What makes a group special, and what connects us to each other?
