The Magna Carta... in ten minutes! - Mind the Gap

Magna Carta on Trial

The Magna Carta… in ten minutes!

Over two weeks in July and August 2015, 14 young people from Bradford took part in a Film Summer School at MTG Studios to create ‘The Magna Carta… in ten minutes!’ – a fun, educational film about the Magna Carta. During the Summer School, participants learnt about filming techniques and how to use professional film and sound equipment.

“It was amusing and professional. It was very interesting to work with non disabled young people as well.” – Sarah Bowes, participant

What is the Magna Carta, how was it created – and why? How did King John accidentally inspire the creation of our modern rights and laws? What does freedom mean to you? This film explores the history of the Magna Carta, human rights and modern democracy.
