The workshop organized in Mexico City was part of a larger UNICEF and UNHCR campaign which started 3 years ago promoting human rights and the rights of the child. Fitting within this framework the workshop theme was promoting diversity and fighting against discrimination.
17 youngsters from all parts of the city participated in the 5-day workshop and created beautiful videos on their views of freedom of expression, social exclusion and diversity. The themes varied from being bullied in school, discrimination of gay people, drug addicts, and being judged by the color of your skin. Great animations, documentaries and fiction videos were made, giving a real clear image of the perceptions of the young Mexicans living in one of the largest cities in the world.
The videos will be screened at the Cineteca in Mexico city on October 23rd and on one of the main squares called Zocalo on the 5th of December.
