The film “Breaking Barriers” was created when a group of young actors from Teatro Trono (Bolivia) was touring Denmark as part of Spor Media’s project Global Kids. The film is directed by Shezenia Hannover and Anahí, two young filmmakers from Spor Media’s Miradas Juveniles project in Bolivia.
Breaking Barriers follows the young actors on their tour in Denmark, documenting their daily life in the host families and the different encounters between the Bolivian and the Danish children. Furthermore, it gives you insight into Teatro Tronos performance “Hasta la ultima gota” – “Until the last drop” on the fight against privatization of water resources in Bolivia.
Breaking Barriers is about cultural encounters, communication and natural resources. The film is supported by EU and CISU, and has been subtitled into seven different languages: Spanish, Danish, German, English, French, Slovenian and Bulgarian.
The filming and the editing conducted by Shezenia and Anahí was part of the Miradas Juveniles training program. They were assisted by Danish-Chilean director Estephan Wagner and Spor Media’s employee and film editor Oskar Fanta.
