ABOUT MOUTH THAT ROARS
A Different Way of Seeing is in partnership with Mouth That Roars (MTR), a youth media company which was set up with the sole purpose of training young people in film production who wouldn’t ordinarily have access to media resources.
MTR enables young people who are quite often misrepresented a space to be heard, and a medium through which they can voice their thoughts and feelings.
