During the summer, 6 of the best and brightest students from the past year’s Triple Exposure classes were selected to work on a special film project: a submission to the UN Alliance of Civilizations PLURAL+ Film Festival!
This year, festival organizers invited submissions on the topics of migration, diversity, and social inclusion. Our students – Hiba, Hala, Mahmoud, Mujahed, Taha, and Yaseen – were taught techniques in filming, acting, stop-motion photography, and story development. The kids themselves created the themes and story for Triple Exposure’s submission to the festival, entitled The Farthest Journeys. The Farthest Journeys illustrates the story of three young Palestinians who go on separate, sometimes fantastical, journeys to visit and pray at Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
