Schools Film Exchange

MTR are working with the Winton Primary School in Islington where the children are producing a film that explores their everyday lives. In addition, the children at Yahya Benjlil's School, Mansouria, located in Zagora, Morocco are also producing a film about their everyday lives.

Both films have been part of a cultural exchange project, where both groups of young people have exchanged letters and as a result, produced films in order to learn about each others lives.

The film exchange aims to happen by March 2007.

For more information on this project, please contact Mouth That Roars.

Over the Christmas period Winton Primary School raised £90.00 for the Mansouria School. This will enable them to purchase animation equipment in order to continue the film process and produce an animation as the second phase to their exchange.
