The section aimed at high school students of DocsBarcelona offers a unique opportunity to awaken students’ consciences while discovering fascinating and real stories through documentary films.
With great success, this year’s edition has more than 3,800 students who have already reserved their seats! All sessions are free and matinée.
How does it work?
This year we dedicated the Docs&Teens section to highlighting climate change, the dangers that our planet faces today, the reality of the global warming and how the place where we are born and live affects us. At the same time, you will discover some of the initiatives and individual or collective struggles from around the world to know, preserve, care and respect our environment. All the screenings will be accompanied by a Q&A between the students and the creators of the films and/or experts on the subjects.
These are the documentaries of this year’s edition, a selection of four fascinating stories:
THANKS FOR THE RAIN – Dir. Julia Dahr. 2017, Norway, UK. 60 min. VOSCat
