Almudena Carracedo, one of the directors of the Berlin Audience Award and Sheffield Grand Jury Award-winning The Silence of Others, will explore different aspects of the film’s 6-year production process.


During this afternoon masterclass she will discuss the work involved in capturing both a deeply personal and a political process – from building trust with protagonists to the 14-month-long edit and the challenges of assembling such a multi-layered story, combining many characters an story arcs, from 450 hours of footage. The session will also consider character building, how to provide context without losing your audience and how to integrate the strategy, goals and tools necessary for a successful impact campaign from early in the film’s development.
