Direct Approach: The Guide Book – How to create a platform for conversations on violence in film and reality by Stine Marie Jacobsen

Self-Published (2016)
143 Pages, 15 x 21 cm, Paperback

Direct Approach is a project based on conversations about violence in film and reality. These conversations are manifested in interviews, film posters and video.

All the conversations with the participants are sound recorded and transcribed into text. From that long text the description of the recollected film scene is subtracted and used for a film poster for the remembered film.

The project was begun in January 2012 and is in progress until the publication of a guidebook in 2014. The guidebook is sharing the social design of Direct Approach and is written for schools and other institutions who wish to work with violence as a topic. Using the guide’s framework will set the groundwork for and provide inspiration for dialogues about recollected film violence and it’s relation to violence in today’s society.
