Opšte informacije

A UNICEF reporter visited our team in Glamoc during the filming of the one-minute movies. The reportage was posted on the website Za svako dijete /tn: For every child/:, and here is the full article.

One paper after another in one of the classrooms of the elementary school ‘Glamoc’ and it became chaotic: papers flying all over the place, and when it seemed that the things are getting out of control an alien appeared at the classroom door! The children stood there frozen and then collected the scattered pieces of paper. The alien then went into the school hallway to calm two boys, who were jostling, down.
“Cut, that’s it!”, marked the end of shooting the last frames of the film ‘Do we need an alien? ‘by Nedzma Dragolovcanin who will go to the seventh grade of the elementary school ‘Glamoc’ next year. In the role of the alien was the author herself.
“The idea is to show how we can solve all of the problems on our own and that we do not need an alien or anyone else to calm us down,” explains Nedzma while taking the alien head mask off that was made together with her friends from the One Minute Movie workshop held on Thursday 25th of June in Glamoc and this is one of the ten films that should be the result of the workshop.
We visited the workshops in Glamoc and Kupres that are being implemented within the “Promoting intercultural dialogue, inclusive and peace education and prevention of violence among children,” activities by the NGO Genesis Project from Banja Luka within the “Applying the Human Security Concept to Stabilize Communities in Canton 10” project financed by the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security and implemented by the UN agencies in BiH (UNICEF, IOM, UNHCR and UNDP).
At the workshops the children devise on their own how to cover and present the subject that they want to talk about in the best and the most effective way using the movies in the duration of one minute. They are acting in each other’s movies, they are behind cameras, they are editing…
“This is my first time to work with a camera at this workshop and it’s nice. The workshop is great, we socialize, learn about the recording, the movie, acting and editing, “says the eighth-grade pupil Alojz Colakovic who is one of the cameramen in the Nedzmina’s film. That was already the second time he was a cameraman at the workshop, and being a member of the school drama club he says that his workshop will be very useful for him.
“I’d like to be an actor one day. I hope that would come true”, he adds. His film, he says, is already completed and it is about the trust between friends. A camerawoman for one of the scenes of the Nedzmina’s film was Lara Komsic who will be in the seventh grade next year. She likes being a camerawoman and everything else in the workshop, and the film that she made at the workshop is talking about fear.
“I wanted to show that fear is normal and that we should not be ashamed if one is afraid of something and that others should not tease us because of that, “explains Lara to us, and Ljubisa Vasic, one of the ‘Genesis Project’ trainers who runs a workshop with Goran Radic in Glamoc reveals that Lara came up with her theme – from her own personal experience.
“She was panicking already, she did not know what to shoot a movie about, and walking around and shooting other movies we were hearing ‘ouch!’, ‘dog!’, ‘horse!’, ‘sparrow!’ … and we have seen that she is afraid of various things, so we came up with the idea that it would be best to make a movie on that subject, “says Ljubisa. Lara says that although she liked the workshops, she sees herself more in music.
“I play piano, I go to music school in Kupres”, she reveals.
One of the ‘troublemakers’, in the movie we saw being filmed, is Noah Galic. He says that although the he has an action scene in the Nedzmina’s movie, he prefers comedies and science fiction, so he fitted perfectly in the movie with an alien.
“I like ‘Lord of the Rings’, and I’ve seen one episode of the ‘Star Wars’ “says Noah. His film was also completed and is about unity. “There are the three football players in the movie, wearing Serbian, Croatian and BiH football shirt playing together, I want to say that this is not the European Championship but Glamoc,” he explains, and there is also one of the actors in his film Marko Markovic:
“I did not make my own movie, but I act, it’s great! I find the idea about football great, and I am one of the players,” he says.
Although they had no alien, at least not in the movie which we saw being made, it was also equally interesting in Kupres, where the one-minute movies workshop with the pupils of the ‘Fra Miroslav Dzaja’ school was held by the other Genesis team that we visited the same day, which was run by Drasko Stojcevic and Svjetlan Cup. In the park in the center of the town we witness the scene where a young girl tries to drive a boy away from the swing who until that moment enjoyed playing, and some onlookers who just watched and did nothing gathered around them. Behind the camera, assisted by Drasko, is Slavka Juric. The ‘bully’ is Laura Perkovic while Ivan Covic is a victim of the harassment. As camera is rolling the scene is ‘intruded ‘ by the movie’s author Iva Bagaric with the message: “The worst thing is to be an observer and doing nothing, the victims need help, now!”, said Iva to the camera.
“The movie will be called the ‘Observers’, it is about those who do nothing to prevent the violence that is happening before their own eyes. It is my desire to encourage everybody to fight against theviolence, “explains Iva to us. She says that she did not have the opportunity to make movies or act.
“I was on TV once, they were filming me playing in the church. Anyway, I play violin and piano and go to music school here in Kupres, I attend the fifth grade of the music school and the eighth grade of the primary school “adds Iva.
The film stars, Laura and Ivan, are in the sixth grade, and they say they enjoy making movies. “It’s great to be in different roles,” we are told during the short breaks. Laura has not yet decided what will be her movie about, and Ivan says that his movie will also be about the peer violence, but in a different way.
“The children talk about the current issues that are a problem of the entire society through the movies. Ivan’s movie is about something that is pervasive throughout the country. The children talk about the problems through these movies, but also show how they can impact the society, and thus at one of the workshops in the previous years one girl made a movie about not having any pedestrian crossing in the town, and after the movie was released the local community reacted and now there is a pedestrian crossing, “says Svjetlan and Drasko adds that Kupres is a true “movie environment”.
“The one-minute movies workshops were also held here in the previous years, and during the last two years in the one-minute movie festival in Banja Luka the movies from Kupres won, I hope that the movies from this workshop will also be of good quality,” said Drasko Stojcevic. The overall objective of the “Promoting intercultural dialogue, inclusive and peace education and prevention of violence among children” activity within the ” Applying the Human Security Concept to Stabilize Communities in Canton 10″ project is to promote the intercultural dialogue, inclusive and peace education and prevention of violence among children in Canton 10 by strengthening the capacity and the development of the appropriate methods for the active participation of all stakeholders – pupils, teachers and parents.
