As part of the International Film Festival on Migration, IOM Niger organized a video workshop for migrants at the transit center in Agadez. Migrants learned to use technical equipment and to interview each other. One by one, they had the chance to film themselves and ask questions about their migration routes. In the end, they edited the videos created with IOM staff and they were proud to have been able to create their own videos. The activity was also an exercise in empathy that was therapeutic for migrants.
This exercise was organized by IOM Niger with the support of the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany.
