Me alone in the classroom


Me alone in the classroom is a portray of young people of color in The Netherlands. How do they see themselves? How do they experience their interaction with white Dutch people? How do they see their future in The Netherlands? To tell this story, Karin Junger created a ‘pressure cooker’ by bringing her children and their friends together in a house for a week and ask them to re-enact their experiences for the camera. She used drama therapy techniques so that they really go through the experiences again so you can see and feel how it affects them.
