After the End of the World

Workshop on the production of narrative documentaries on the Anthropocene

Audiovisuals + Courses and workshops

A theory and practice workshop that aims to introduce students into the world of documentary production, with a particular interest in the theme of the Anthropocene.

The aim is to provide the technological and technical terms to carry out a micro-project based on producing documentaries, with the goal of adding to the exhibition’s set of proposals and activities a greater plurality of views originating from the sphere of the audience. As a conclusion, a YouTube channel will be opened with all the micro-documentaries produced by the students.

The workshop will consist of four sessions, the two narrative sessions will take place at the CCCB’s Beta Station, within the context of the After the End of the World exhibition, and the practical sessions at the Escola Plató.
