FGM and Film Studies Project
A young champion from St Helen and St Katharine School helped create our film, Are You Ready to Know?.The champion, aged 16, took part in a series of workshops to create a film to demonstrate how parents can talk to young children about FGM. Together with students from 3 other schools, the film-makers learnt about FGM, advocacy, storyboarding, interviewing, filming and editing, before creating their own film. The team was given full control over the film content and all the editing decisions. The course was facilitated by Kate Agha and Fatou Ceesay from Oxford Against Cutting, together with professional film-maker, Stephen Fontaine.
