The writing residences of Banjul

The writing residences of Banjul

In collaboration with Senegalese filmmaker Angèle Diabang, the French Institute of Senegal, the French Alliance of Banjul and the National Center of Art and Culture of The Gambia organized a 10-day document writing and documentary workshop.

The documentaries focus on the transitional justice process launched by the Gambian authorities a year ago.
The young filmmakers had to work on the following themes:

  1. The voice of the victims
  2. The question of forgiveness
  3. The question of individual and collective reconstruction,
  4. How to remake society together after mass exactions.

The training took place at the Alliance Française at Kairaba Avenue in Kannifing. 12 candidates had been selected.
Their work was broadcast during the cultural festival on transitional justice organized at the Alliance française de Banjul on April 16 and 17, 2018.

Thank you all for the great work done.
