The Missing City Stars – The Missing City Stars

Date grant awarded: December 22, 2018

The Missing City Stars is a non profit film association based in Barcelona. Made up of a small group of documentary film makers, The Missing City Stars give minority groups a voice by helping them make their own documentaries. Through this process they dispel prejudice; encourage positive social evolution; and encourage inter-community relations while shining a light on the different cultures, societies, and religions within the city.

The Missing City Stars is currently working with a group of homeless people in Barcelona. This collaboration will ensure that six members from the homeless community will complete the workshops and produce a short documentary on the subject of their choice. The homeless are a collective who have very few, if any, social avenues to share their stories and feelings. It is undeniably important to provide a communication platform for social minorities as we all have the right to be given a voice.
