The last Docs on Wheels stop for this summer is Xanthi, one of your favourite destinations up north. Previously visited in 2016, the scope of this year’s event is wider, as we’ll be screening two documentaries at FEX and running a 2-day workshop at Veria TechLab, a space dedicated to innovation and creativity.
The documentaries scheduled over the weekend are two prime examples of non-fiction filmmaking produced in the last couple of years in the US, “Salam Neighbour” by Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temple and “Song of Lahore” by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Andy Schocken. Meanwhile, “Smartphone & Smart Stories”, an audiovisual workshop aimed at documenting personal narratives, will be in full swing 11am-2pm over at Veria TechLab. This 2-day audiovisual experiment is a fantastic introduction to filmmaking, as each participant will get to shoot and script a small segment of an anthology documentary dedicated to first-person storytelling.
The event is organised by Exile Room with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Athens and the American Film Showcase.
July 28 and July 29, 2018
