Starting at the beach on Lesbos, Another News Story travels across Europe alongside refugees, turning the camera on the international journalists who follow them and the role they play in representing the crisis to the world.
Since 2015, the current refugee crisis has flooded every news and media outlet across the globe. Director Orban Wallace travels across Hungary and Croatia, through camps and across borders, meeting not just refugees like Syrian mother Mahasen, but also the media who are never far away.
Their priority is to distil the story and make it digestible to their viewers back home; to make a situation clear and compelling; to wait look for the ‘interesting’ moments. Another News Story gives a new perspective on a much-covered situation, raising important questions about what happens behind the camera, and how the life cycle of a news story starts and grows.
