‘Butine Badiaké’, a journey from Emilio Ferrari Secondary School to Senegal

Pilar Díez and Paloma Pérez together with students from Emilio Ferrari Secondary School

10/26/2018.- Directors Pilar Díez and Paloma Pérez presented the short film Butine Badiaké: un buen camino, on Friday 26thOctober in the Cinema and Climate Change section.

The short film was made in April 2018, when a group of students and teachers from Emilio Ferrari Secondary School in Valladolid travelled to Senegal to discover the consequences of climate change and the impoverishment which it is causing in the country, as well as to seek joint solutions.

The teachers of the Advanced Course in Sociocultural Animation at Emilio Ferrari Secondary School in Valladolid have been working with the production company Tus Ojos since 2014, with a methodology based on training students in creating ideas, co-directing, filming and editing audiovisual projects.

All of this is based on an understanding of cinema as a tool for transmitting values in the framework of the SDGs, with the aim of instilling a sense of social responsibility in the students in response to the huge challenges humanity faces: sustainability, climate change and equality. They have directed short films including Aquella foto vacía (2015), Happening violencia de género (2016), Cadena de favores (2017) and Perspectiva paralela (2017), among others.
