These videos originated out of my questioning, what young people really need in education these days.
As education is - at least for me - something that happens between people, rather than on paper, I was looking for an interactive and creative way to explore this question.
Doing film interviews with young people in their educational environment, has proven as both a fun and effective way to do so. Not only does it provide answers to the question out of real life experience and shows where people agree with each other, it also allows the young people to reflect on their learning, their dreams and their wishes as well as to express themselves.
The first interview project happened spring 2010, where I interviewed my fellow students at The International Youth Initiative Program in Sweden.
Spring 2011, I was invited by Onrana Steiner School in Australia to interview their Highschool and College students.
If you are interested to explore this or another personal question with a specific group of people using this film interview method. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Yours Silvia Angel
