How can handed-down knowledge about storytelling be adopted to develop excepti- onal narrative film worlds? This truly inter- continental panel will immerse into cultural spaces in Africa, Latin America and India to discover the stories and narrative traditions that are rooted there. Filmmakers and screen- writers will discuss how their cinematic work has been inspired by the narrative structures from their own or other people’s cultural backgrounds.
