SYNOPSIS

90"feature documentary

Another News Story goes behind the scenes of the global news crews as they chase the refugee story across Europe at the height of the crisis. A riveting insight into the human story of a lone Syrian mother's journey juxtaposed against the unraveling and chaotic news story which held the world captive in 2015.

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?.

Called ‘a brilliant film’ by Charlie Phillips in The Guardian, Another News Story captures both the ground-floor perspective of the European refugee crisis and the jarring press frenzy that surrounds it. 'The end result is probably as profound insight into the true nature of the refugee crisis as you will ever get' P. Stuart Robinson- Montages Magazine
