The Blogtrotters are a collaborative video blog from France who in their 9th project are travelling to Argentina to make Hijos, a collective documentary on the missing children of the dictatorship, trying to trace back their origins to their disappeared parents.
On the project website, an introductory video explains what they intend to do with their online documentary:
During their journey to Argentina they've been updating constantly through their twitter account, facebook page, pictures on flickr and website video posts. As they investigate, capture images and videos or interview people, they are receiving real time comments, suggestions and are generating conversations which in turn determines what course the documentary will take.
As they explain on their site, this interaction with online citizens will extend their initiative and broaden the topic:
Les internautes pourront influencer le processus éditorial. Ils pourront nous suggérer des personnes à voir, des lieux à visiter, ou nous posez des questions. A charge pour nous d’hierachiser ces apports et d’intégrer cette participation sans nuire à la ligne éditoriale générale.
They also visited the offices of a scientific NGO which is dedicated to identifying remains that have been found in order to give peace of mind to families who have waited decades to know the whereabouts of their disappeared children and siblings. So far, 100 of the 500 newborns who disappeared while the parents were kidnapped have been reunited with their families. Here is their video interview, this time held in English:
And in this other heartwrenching interview [fr], they speak with Ana Maria Careaga, who herself was kidnapped when she was only 16, then she was released and left the country in exile. Her mother, a member of the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo group, remained in Argentina and was killed as she was leaving Mass in the Church of Santa Cruz.
