Can documentaries help us tell a different story about global development?

22 June 2016 13:00–14:30

Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 9RE

Telling development stories through mainstream television documentaries can be a tough game, and often involves compromise between journalists trying to tell a compelling story and development agencies and researchers trying to present complex issues involving vulnerable groups.

Participate Initiative - MEND/Real Time

How do we balance the opportunity to tell accessible stories about development to large international audiences against the need to empower people to safely share their lived experiences?

This seminar, jointly hosted by IDS and the International Broadcasting Trust will explore these opportunities and challenges from the perspectives of film makers, researchers and NGOs.
