Blows to the Soul
Juan and Carlos attend the same school in southern Bogotá, Colombia. One is bullying, the other is being bullied until both participate in the social theatre project BLOWS TO THE SOUL. The workshop program helps them to escape their roles as perpetrator and victim and to generate mutual respect by learning about themselves and others.
»Through the film BLOWS TO THE SOUL I want to give a voice to children who suffered from bullying. Guido Molina shows how you can bring together victims and perpetrators in a theater workshop and change their lives to the better.«
»The project BLOWS TO THE SOUL joins theater with educational and preventive work. The authentic theater play is based on the actual environment and everyday school life of teenagers. It could be implemented in Germany, too.«
