MASTER CLASS: SALOME JASHI

During her masterclass Salomé Jashi will talk about her experience of producing and directing her latest documentary The Dazzling Light of Sunset. A special emphasis will be given to writing the treatment, as well as to how the research was conducted and how it contributed to the production of the final film. Salomé will look at the big question of ‘what is the story’ and the double play of presenting it to the others and defining it for yourself. The talk will also cover the challenge of being demotivated and then re-motivated again through all the phases of production as well as how a synthesis of openness and stubbornness contribute to making a successful film.
