About

Slow journalism & radical softness

Other Story unfolds in the intersection of journalism, art, activism and research, as an independant media-community, with members from the arts, sociology, theatre, journalism, academic research, digital design and activism. 

Other Story collects stories and gathers voices. One human being at a time. One story at a time. Becoming a collection of personal stories of a changing world, told by the people who are living the change. Other Story is Slow Journalism and believes in Radical Softness.

 

In my opinion, “Other Story” is far more than a work of art, it is a humanitarian manifest, because it uses the film media to create an image of the reality and intense presence of the other person’s life, a reality which we are inclined to ignore, reject or even despise. The difference in culture and existential situation is overcome and over-bridged in the twinkling of an eye, and our escape into a safe ignorance is no longer a possibility.
