This film explores Bacha Bulletins – a 15 month project carried out in 2012-13 in Pakistan by Laaj Verd. An attempt to bridge communication gaps between different socio-cultural strata, Bacha Bulletins engages young children from different communities within Lahore and Islamabad. Storytelling, photography and aural workshops encourage them to actively explore their surroundings following the various cultural and social upheavals that have transformed their world. The material generated by these workshops is transformed into newspaper comics and online radio shows (in collaboration with Aamawaam).
The project is being run by Laaj Verd and is supported by Commonwealth Foundation and Prince Claus Fund. For more information about this project, contact Laaj Verd or visit the Insight to Conflict website.
