After the Liège workshop, Dérives, it is the turn of Gsara to spend an evening under the Cinergie spotlight.
The socialist-leaning workshop, Groupe Socialiste d’Action et de Réflexion sur l’Audio-Visuel was created in 1976 when video first appeared in Belgium. As a lifelong learning association, its primary ambition is to foster a critical outlook. Operating in the field of social action, developing community projects, GSARA also offers training in visual techniques. Recognised by the Wallonia-Brussels Federation in 1991, this production workshop aims to support the production and promotion of creative documentaries; the place of the filmmaker and their presence (physical, vocal) permeates and sustains most of the films produced throughout the history of the workshop.
