LUCAS Location Scouts
The idea: The LUCAS Location Scouts bring films in contact with their own milieu. They seek out places in their own surroundings that remind them of a film they’ve pre-screened and then capture these places in short video clips. Descriptions and interviews in the little films portray the reality of the young filmmakers and allow film to mediate between art, the medium, and their own perspective of the world. During the festival the young scouts will introduce their project and “their” film and moderate a film discussion on the topic.
This year two groups of 8-to-13-year-old children from the Internationalem Kinderhaus and the greater school administration of the Karmeliter and Weißfrauen Schools in Frankfurt’s Bahnhof district were on the move as LUCAS Location Scouts. The video clips from their district will accompany the film screening of NOT WITHOUT US – NICHT OHNE UNS:
