Training class in Bangladesh gets underway

Training class in Bangladesh gets underwayThe new training course for the Wheelchair Users’ Film Group at CRP in Bangladesh started on the 29th January.

At this first class, the recently appointed PFP trainer, Bayezid Kamal, discussed different views of filmmaking and the technical aspects involved. He also provided a short history of the film industry. It was most important, he said, that group members watch more movies and study the techniques employed.

The four members of the Wheelchair Users’ Film Group – Minu, Rooma, Riaz and Sabitha – all seemed delighted with the opportunity that this new course provides.

Wheelchair users’ film group spreads the message on disability

The Wheelchair Users’ Film Group based at CRP in Bangladesh continues to develop and is now starting to spread the disability message well outside CRP itself.

One of their members, Minu, has been asked to make a special video for use by a child neurologist at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).

The Neurologist explains that she has a waiting room full of parents and carers and that she feels that, if they can be watching a helpful film about the management of cerebral palsy and hemiplegia while they wait, they will have the opportunity to learn something really useful.

PFP continue to support the Wheelchair Users’ Film Group and have just sent them a new external hard drive for use by Minu during her editing work on this and other projects.

Work of Wheelchair Users’ Film Group to be screened at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.

A three minute documentary, shot and edited by Minu a member of the Wheelchair Users’ Film Group in Bangladesh, will shortly be shown at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow.

The CD will be screened as an introduction to a concert featuring the singer and songwriter Yvonne Lyon, considered to be amongst the best and brightest talent currently emerging from Scotland. Ms Lyon has kindly agreed to give this special performance in aid of the Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed, Bangladesh, where the Film Group is based.
