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.

Q&A with Dimple Patel after the screening – part of the 2018 Journeys Festival International at Phoenix Cinema, Leicester.

6pm-8pm Lecture Theatre 2, Centre for Medicine, University of Leicester, 15 Lancaster Rd, Leicester LE1 7HA

Tuesday 21st November is also United Nations World Television Day

In recognition of the increasing impact television has on decision-making by bringing world attention to conflicts and threats to peace and security and its potential role in sharpening the focus on other major issues, including economic and social issues, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 November as World Television Day (through resolution 51/205 of 17 December 1996).

World Television Day is not so much a celebration of the tool, but rather the philosophy which it represents. Television represents a symbol for communication and globalization in the contemporary world.

The 2017 Documentary Media Month theme is global citizens dedicated to showcasing real peoplereal places and real events from around the world.

The documentary film programme is the 8th Leicester Docfilm Festival.
