Another News Story

Producer - Verity Wislocki
Director - Orban Wallace
Editor - Dominic Stabb
Consulting Editor: Michael Nellet

In association with Gallivant Films

Status: Released


The feature documentary debut of Orban Wallace, Another News Story was filmed during the 2015 Syrian refugee crisis. Wallace’s film follows refugees from the Greek island of Lesbos, 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. But the British director also turns his camera on the world media on assignment in the Mediterranean as they cover the unfolding humanitarian tragedy. In today’s chaotic era, what is the “who, how, and why” of the 24-hour breaking news cycle as it relates to global conflicts and crises? When faced with immeasurable suffering, how do they balance their humanity with professional objectivity and the day to day mundanity of their jobs. Is it possible to walk the line between a good story and sensationalism? Or, glazed, do you just go after Another News Story?
