The participating students in the Vietnam Ireland Schools Link Initiative, their teachers were brought together on the morning of Friday the 22nd of November to watch and discuss a selection of short films curated by The Learning Project coordinators and local film-makers. The event held to launch part 2 of the project which involves the students making short documentary films in groups. Hanoi based filmmakers Paul Zetter and Trần Phương Thảo showed films as part of the event and participated in question and answer sessions with the students. The students gained useful insights into the differing approaches Paul and Thảo adopt as they develop their projects and some practical advice on how to get films finished. You can watch Paul's film 'My Journey to Work' by following this link and a watch clip from Thảo's documentary Worker's Dreams below.
