DIGI-TALES workshop by Hüseyn Karabey

The short animation movie No darkness will make us forget by Huseyin Karabay, produced by ART for The World was presented during The Mediterranean Approach at the Palazzo Zenobio, in Venice (2011), at [mac] Museum of Contemporary Art in Marseille (2012) and at SESC Pinheiros - São Paulo, Brazil (2012/2013). 

Following this idea that everyone has something to say about himself, during his journey in São Paulo at SESC Pinheiros, Hüseyin Karabey has put together three days workshop Digi-tales.
Through the dynamics of relationship the filmmaker created an atmosphere where the ten participants of the workshop felt free to tell their stories. By the end, Digi-tales became a collection of ten emotional short movies of people from all places and of all classes: from architecture students to refugees. Karabey believes that the stories should be told by their protagonists and in Digi-tales he turned these histories into Art, creating a process of healing their souls. The importance and beauty of the method is that it can be shared. In fact, the participants can easily teach each other the fundamental values, the respect for themselves and their identity.
