وبداکیومنتری با مشارکت بچه های بی شناسنامه در ایران
An interactive documentary about the lives of children without legal identification documents in Iran

The Story:
The children that we are working with are Iranian and Afghan children without legal identification documents. As a result, they have no access to social services including formal education.They face different forms of discrimination in their daily life.These children are almost never heard. We believe in human stories .We believe that the voice of these children are lost between bricks of mainstream media. On the other hand, most of the works done in a non-mainstream media context give an impression of an orientalist image, romanticize poverty and marginalize further the poor. We believe that these children should be given a chance to narrate their stories. We choose not the role of an observer but the facilitator in the process of stories being developed and heard. On this path,children will eventually move away from being passive and adopt an active role. In seeking an innovative approach,we aim to engage a larger group of audience from different backgrounds in responding to these stories. These people will no longer be mere consumers and their traditional role is challenged. In this process, we hope to build a mutual understanding and move towards social justice and equality.
