ACTIVITIES IN SCHOOLS
One of the objectives in Cineastas in Acción is to bring closer the cultural reality in Africa to Spanish kids and letting the kids in Senegal get to know the Spanish culture. The idea is to do it through images and, to do so, in 2012 we started and exchange of video letters between schools in both countries. The first experience was done in the El Boalo (Madrid) Town Hall, during the celebration of Ukumbi Bocema, exchange days and opportunities with Africa.The kids from the Public School San Sebastián had the possibility of being the main actors of a video in which they described their homes, towns and families to their Senegal mates. During August the video was projected in Enampore and, later, another video was recorded in which the pupils of CEM showed the most beautiful corners of their town, talking about their customs, their dreams and their games. This video pretends to be the first in way too many exchanges between schools, to be able to get together different cultures and provide an insight of both countries more close, human and real.
