What would you take with you? - we asked the question from 45 students participating in the project. The cooperation between the two schools was born last year during the Common Ground seminar, with different layouts and plans. This year, the primary objective of the project was to have a real relationship between the two schools, enabling students to gain insight into each other's cultural background and to get acquainted with a less familiar world during their joint creative work. The goal was to create a short film together, focusing on the question of what the children would bring with them from Hungary if they had to leave their homes. The film is based on a poem written by the students, inspired by the poem of Virág Erdős: Ezt is elviszem magammal (I'll also take this with myself). Beside the poem, each student added a short selfie video to the film, explaining what she or he would take if she or he would have to leave Hungary.
