The disadvantaged Roma youth rarely have the opportunity to create communication materials in cooperation with their peers, based on their own ideas and themes in a way that is also recognised by the majority society. The initiative, which will involve 12-13 year-old youth in South Baranya, will help them make their own films through drama activities and media workshops. The communal creative work will develop the knowledge and cooperation skills of the youth. The films created will be shared by public screenings and on the net. It will give the experience of success for the young, while society will be sensitized and will open a dialogue. The 5 films made by the 23 young people will demonstrate that the Roma youth are interested in many issues, have opinion on the world they are living in and are capable of making a difference – just like any member of any other group.
