Workshop 1 - Documenting events: high-risk work

50 years after 1968, three special workshops explore the essential issues surrounding documentary production amidst social conflict.

Workshop 1 - Documenting events: high-risk work
90 minutes

Documentary filmmaking can mean working in dangerous, unpredictable settings. Filming in conflict zones or violence-prone situations requires filmmakers and their crews to be thoroughly prepared, and equipped with extensive tools and knowledge. Swedish producer, cinematographer and photojournalist Jonathan Saruk covered the war in Afghanistan from 2008 to 2012, the Arab Spring in Yemen and Bahrain in 2011, several insurrections in Gaza and the West Bank, the rebellion in the eastern Congo, and post-conflict events in Sierra Leone, Ukraine and Colombia. In this workshop he will share his experiences and help equip participants who are considering filming in risky places.

Jonathan Saruk will give an overview of questions to be asked and contingencies to plan for, illustrated with examples from his own work.

In English, open to all
