Stories shape us. We shape our stories. Our place adds the flavour! Fadó Fadó is back again this year after its success in last year’s festival, where it was screened to a live audience and watched thousands of times online.
Artist, animator, and educator John D Ruddy, aka Manny Man, once again helped a group of young people of ethnic minorities (age 11-18) explore and connect with stories from their cultures. They each created an animated short film, using their own voices to tell their own stories and which will have their premiere as part of the festival.
Manny Man is the creation of John D Ruddy, an actor, writer, You Tuber and theatre-maker. He has been creating history videos since 2013 and has since garnered over 243K subscribers and over 30 million views.
