The film „Bridging the Gap“ is based on a participatory approach. The protagonists not only shot the film themselves, but also took part in the conception and implementation of the project.

After that, the participants were introduced to camera and sound recording as well as to different documentary styles. During the shooting of the film, they took over different roles such as director, cinematographer or actor.
