synopsis

Orban Wallace’s debut film is a fresh take on the story of the Middle Eastern refugee crisis. As he follows a large group of refugees who start off in Lesbos and travel across Europe, Wallace adds a new level of representation as he turns his camera towards the journalists who accompany these refugees through their entire trip. The outcome of this shared experience is a moving documentary which becomes exactly the opposite of what its title suggests: not just “another news story” about the plight of refugees, but a powerful, oblique perspective of the humanitarian disaster on Europe’s doorstep, as reflected in the conscience of the men and women in the media.
