The children are working with our artists to produce their own documentaries inspirEd by The First Movie which is currently touring cinemas across the uk.

About the film

“It came about because director Mark and producer Gill separately went to Kurdistan.  They loved the place and wanted to make a film about it.  Mark thought it would be best to focus on kids, because their minds are uninhibited and developing fast.  A good way to try to see inside those little minds, he thought, would be to give the kids cameras and let them film what they liked.

Mark and Gill travelled around Kurdish Iraq in 2008, and chose the village of Goptapa as their location, because of its beauty and hopes for the future, but also because it has a tragic past.”
