We are a group of Arab and Jewish girls who have been participating in Mamuta’s video workshop for the past 5 days. We found this program really fun and interesting, and the guides (Yosi, Gay, Hadasa & Hagit) were very cooperative with us and willing to give us more and more knowledge about photographing and filming. This is an opportunity that comes only once in a life time, and it’s really great that we’ve managed to finish our shooting and editing successfully in a very short limited time. A lot of thanks for the guides, the facilitator (Asma) and the whole group that helped us making our films successful.
