Stay Home - bin zuhause. und du?
Is exchange during Corona Pandemic possible? How do children and teenagers in Germany and Russia deal with the current situation? ATELIER-film-mobil wanted to explore these questions in form of film project. Enthusiastic participants from Germany and Russia embarked on an exciting "journey":
During creative workshops in Berlin and in Sovetsk, German and Russian kids dealt with the Corona virus and imagined the ways it could be defeated. Their imagination was unlimited. Unfortunately, they could not work together because of the pandemic, therefore, they decided that each side would artistically implement the other's suggestions. So the project participants in Russia brought German suggestions and idea to life by drawing, painting and making animated clips. German participants did the same with the ideas from Russia.
This project is made possible with friendly support from the funding organisation Stiftung Deutsch-Russischer Jugendaustausch.
