Another News Story

I enjoyed (not really the right word) this excellent documentary screened at Phoenix Cinema – part of the 2018 Journeys Festival International in Leicester. Thanks to Oli Page for the invitation to the screening and opportunity to facilitate the post-screening Q&A with Dimple Patel.

Another News Story takes a fresh view of the European refugee crisis. The film opens in 2015 Greece as refugees arrive on the idyllic island of Lesbos and follows refugees into Hungary and Croatia and across  Europe to a hoped-for sanctuary. The film chronicles a journey beset by physical deprivation and danger, bureaucratic and political obstacles and thousands of miles of uncertainty. As the refugees wind their way across Europe they are accompanied by a pack of fellow travellers – reporters, camera-operators, producers and news vans. As he too travels alongside the refugees debut British director, Orban Wallace, turns the camera in a new direction: the world’s 24-hour news gatherers in pursuit of the breaking story.
