Horagai is a space for film creation aimed at young people in situations of social vulnerability. By learning audiovisual creation and technique, they explore their realities to stop being the objects of a narrative and become creators from their own vision of the world, breaking down stereotypes.
“I enjoyed Horagai because it’s not just acting; it’s thinking, writing, creating and knowing that there is a process behind it. We go to the cinema to see films and never see the process behind them. A process that is long and difficult even if it doesn’t seem like it. I’ve learned a lot. I can say that I have learned a ton. Not just a lot; a ton. I’ve really enjoyed it.”
“I joined Horagai because I knew about it through a girl who was in it the first year. I was interested and I waited until I was old enough to take part. On an artistic level, I’ve learned to use the camera, the boom, sound, contrasting colours... Personally, it has given me so much!I’ve met a lot of people and learnt a lot of things by seeing many different ways of being. I really enjoyed it.”

Said Bouich took part in the first running. of Horagai. In the third running he volunteered as a translator, teacher and assistant to the participants’ creative processes:
“It’s been very different because I already knew how it goes and I think it’s much better when you go on to teach, even though you’re still learning, because it’s very nice to give back what you’ve learned. That’s where the magic is.”
Noha participated in the first running of Horagai and then continued her training at another school. She did her internship at Horagai during the third running:
“We had a lot of fun and we were able to teach a bit more than what we learned in the first year. In particular, I’ve learnt more and I am very happy because Horagai is amazing. I wish I could be a little girl again to go back and do it over. I’m very happy.
“What I liked the most was shooting with the camera and sound. I would do the workshop again.”
