CBR Meet Session – Working with MediaNovember 30, 2011
Got over with my assignment to talk about Documentary Filmmaking as an Effective Advocacy Tool for Promoting the Rights of PWDs using powerpoint! Problem was I had more slides and video clips that they could not fit within the 15-min limit. So, I had to skip slides in the latter part of the presentation. Sayang! Penny of UP Camp facilitated with Mr. Deepak of India. Deaf friends came over — Weng, Rey, Raphy with Jun and Febe as interpreters. Later met unexpectedly Analou Suan of Dumaguete GPRehab Center. Also came to know Ms Sheena of India who knows [Ish] Kapoorji, We Care Filmfest Director. The CBR meet being held at Sofitel Hotel will be until tomorrow, December 1. It will be capped on December 2 by the International Disability Day Celebrations at SM Moa [For photos, click walk-for-rights-of-persons-with.html from a report by Deaf-e-news.] With this done, I’ll be able to fully concentrate now on Project Rizal: A mi Patria – the translation of five poems of our National Hero Dr Jose Rizal to serve primarily the interests of the Deaf and the Blind. All-Deaf performers interpreted Rizal’s poems; Poem readers were UP KAL Professors [except for two].
