Another News Story – Exclusive Bristol Screening

June 25, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£8
Another News Story at The Island, Bristol
Another News Story takes a fresh view on 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-operaters, 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.

Amongst the backdrop of countless reports and documentaries covering the refugee crisis, Another News Story is unique in the way that it analyses the role of journalism itself. It is a thought-provoking and ethical investigation of how the Western world interacts with such horrific “stories”, tackling issues surrounding complacency, exploitation and the aesthetics of the medium.

Selected for 20 International Film Festivals.

Another News Story has recently premiered in London and this is an exclusive opportunity to see this innovative and groundbreaking documentary in Bristol.
