On this International Women’s Day 2013 we are happy to invite you to the screening of our 8thÂ project,Â Breaking The Spell.
In 2012, VOW Media worked withÂ young girls - who have been victimized by, or are at theÂ risk of falling victim to â€śloverboysâ€ť, as well as girls who have gone throughÂ severe traumaticÂ experiences, such as repeated emotional, physical and/orÂ sexual abuse – in a series of workshops where they learned how to utilizeÂ different forms of media to create their very ownÂ self-portrait with photography,Â radio, and video. The girlsÂ directed, shot, and edited the work themselves, reflecting onÂ their experiences in the past, and expressing feelings and hopesÂ for theirÂ futures.
The photography they created is included in an exhibitionÂ and in aÂ Breaking the Spell calendar.Â Their radio showÂ Slam Asja FM, withÂ revelatory interviews about the questionÂ -Â â€śWhatÂ they think the difference is, if there isÂ any, between themÂ and girls their age not living inÂ the shelter?â€ť â€“ is availableÂ online.
And now, theÂ Breaking TheÂ Spell
video, a collection of short stories coming directly fromÂ their voices, will be premiered in Amsterdam for your viewing.

Location: Rialto,Â Ceintuurbaan 338 – Amsterdam
