HEY MUM TOUR FINISHED

The Hey Mum Tour aims to bring mothers and daughters together through our film “Hey Mum tell me…” and joins different cultural backgrounds within the theme of motherhood. This film was made in 2006 in a collaboration with AAUFF, the ‘Koorenhuis’ and the ‘Hofstadcollege’ from The Hague.

The result was a filmic research into two generations of women and their self-images, their self-image during adolescence into adulthood. Now and then. Yesterday and today. Mothers and daughters. With rituals that were relevant yesterday onto rituals that are still being used today. Young Muslim girls and young girls from different backgrounds are in conversation with their own mothers and with other mothers.

Young Editors II

On March 17 in 2009 the new Young Editors edition started with four new participants. These four participants have been selected to join the exclusive Young Editors workshop. In the coming three months they’ll be introduced to all the inns and outs of editing and they’ll be making their own film, under the supervision of professional editors. After twelve weeks these films will premiere and all participants will receive a certificate for finishing the course. And maybe, just maybe, there’s a small job waiting for you as an assistant editor at AllAboutUs FilmFactory or with another company you might like?!

You can find more information about the YoungEditors workshop and the four participants of the Young Editors workshop second edition in the project section of this website!
