Another News Story
Director: Orban Wallace
Running Time: 84′
Mahasen Nassif, a Syrian woman trying to make her way to Germany, avoids guards on the Hungarian border, makes deals with smugglers and pushes forward through the chaos in search of sanctuary. Journalist Bruno probes the same chaos with a mix of concern and cynicism, searching for a story. Orban Wallace’s debut feature follows the refugee crisis through Europe: a journey beset by painful uncertainty, physical and political obstacles and the ever present cameras of the news media. The film’s lense pulls back to confront and interrogate this media circus, questioning the integrity and purpose of journalism in the era of 24 hour news.
Filmmaker Orban Wallace, protagonist Mahasen Nassif and participants from The Refugee Journalism Project are expected to attend and participate in a post-screening Q&A.
