Lusófona University was invited to send 10 students to China to make 10 films in 10 days.
Under the guidance of our teacher Gonçalo Galvão Teles, ten students from our Film bachelor and master degree and also participants on our Essemble project , went to Qingdao with the purpose of discovering the Chinese culture and put it in a 10 minute documentary.
With the theme “Individual, Family, Nation” as a starting point, our students were challenged to shoot in 5 days and then had 5 more days to edit the ten documentaries. On the closing ceremony, at Qingdao University, our students presented their films to an excited audience that was thrilled with the result of our student’s effort.
After a long travel back home and with wonderful memories for life, we showed the films to our students, teachers, friends, family members and we couldn’t be prouder of them.
The result of this experience was an invitation to the 2016 edition, 10 amazing films and a life changing experience for everyone involved. This proves that our students are able to adapt to any situation, environment and make good films as a result.
