Born to parents from the west of Ireland, and growing up in Reading, Paul Cooke is a participatory filmmaker who has worked with young people in Germany, South Africa, Cambodia and Lebanon. Paul trains young people make films about the legacy of the past and its impact on their lives today. This has involved helping young people to make films about the Stasi past in Germany or the legacy of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. In this, his first documentary project (made as part of his Masters Degree at Bradford University), he reflects upon his work in South Africa, where he's been working with young people to make films about the continuing legacy of apartheid.
