For five years, Alma was a member of the Maras, one of the most violent gangs in Guatemala. In a country undermined by violence, Alma is typical of her generation, growing up in a world where laws and justice were flouted with impunity.
Photographer Miquel Dewever-Plana and journalist Isabelle Fougère allow Alma to tell her story on various platforms: aside from the interactive web and tablet application, they have also created a TV version, a photography exhibition and a pair of books. The interactive tablet version brings all these elements together.
Producer Alexandre Brachet will give a live presentation of this award winning web documentary.
Between The Lines is a three-day festival exploring the challenges facing documentary makers, investigative journalists and citizen reporters in the new media landscape.
