24.11.2016: Film director Youko Aaltonen had a master class How to write the scenario for documentary film

Chairman of jury of the International Film Festival "Northern Character" Youko Aaltonen talked about particularities of script writing for the documentary. Documentary is a special genre, and some directors do not  admit scenarios being convinced that the plan of the film should be born during editing. Youko Aaltonen thinks that the plan of the film nevertheless should be prior to shooting. During the master class the director examined in details some important dramaturgic principles and methods.

From Youko Aaltonen`s point of view the film is interesting when the viewer has an opportunity "to conjecture" movie and intellectually and emotionally connect all the elements and scenes of the film among themselves.
