Fri 2 November 2018

Laura Ferres

Director of Cannes’ awarded Los Desheredados, Laura Ferres joins us in Glasgow to discuss the boundaries between fiction and documentary. This Masterclass will investigate how to use personal stories to be told in a true original way. How much can be exposed? How much of your personal life are you risking? How far the filmmaker should go?
