Discover short docs showcasing untold stories from around the world directed by talented emerging filmmakers and curated from the One World Media Fellowship programme.

Each unique and untold story explores what it means to take your own path in a changing world. Meet a Palestinian teenager who finds solace in cyberspace; the only black and LGBTQIA+ member of Brazil’s congress fighting for the representation of Rio’s favelas; the Siberian factory workers coming to terms with the end of the Space Race; and a Mexican family who preserves the tradition of harvesting purple ink from sea snails in the face of a changing climate.

Find out more about the filmmakers here.

Tune in from 6pm on Thursday 18th to watch the film programme followed by a live Q&A with the filmmakers at 7.15pm GMT.
