The video shows the multiplicity of expressions that children build up in their play cultures. The children play the role of co-creative documentarists in the after-school institution at Risskov School. They often handle camera and microphone and take part in a collaboration to create narratives about play.
Gertrud the Ant and Other Narratives and Plays is part of af lager project: Play Culture – Playing Media. It focuses on exactly those expressions of play which are found in informal cultural contexts. The children show what engage them and the documentarist is an active part of these investigative and productive processes.
