‘Voices of Guerrero’ is a documentary film that shows the results and experiences from a photography and video workshop run for street-kids in a poor neighbourhood of the biggest city in the world. Apart from being the main characters, these guys, to a great extent, produced the film. It’s a social, artistic project aimed at fostering marginalised people’s development through art and opening new communication channels between community and the street-kids. By using innovative approaches to media, the documentary allows the audience to see the life of these street-kids through their own eyes, transforming them from passive media consumers into active producers.
