Living Legends 2 Europe

From 2021 to 2023, Moviemiento will conduct further Living Legends workshops in Europe as part of a strategic partnership. Supported by the ERASMUS+ program of the European Union, the experienced workshop leaders from the Moviemiento team will share their knowledge and workshop methods with the project partners from Portugal and Italy.
In September 2021 a kick off meeting took place in Portugal.

The first Living Legends Workshop with preceding Train the Trainer Seminar took place from April 30 to May 15, 2022 in Berlin and Pasewalk, Mecklenburg Vorpommern.

In September 2022, the international team will meet again in Portugal, where FAÍSCA VOADORA will organize a workshop in Setúbal.

In May 2023, CINÉMA DU DÉSERT invites to Italy, where the third 14-day Living Legends workshop will take place.

The first Living Legends Tour with 9 workshops took place in 2017 in Europe and South America, where the workshop methods were developed together and the international team traveled together to all countries.

Stop motion films

Fairy tales, myths and legends

In five to seven workshop days, young people produce short animated films from fairy tales, myths and legends. They interview older people who tell them stories from their region that were passed on orally from the older to the younger generation in earlier times, but are hardly ever told today. The young people transform the stories into animated films using stop-motion technology.

At the end of each workshop there is a public film screening. In addition, all films are made available to the general public on the project website.
