About HOME | Aamir

In 2016 we produced a 360˚ verbatim storytelling film about Aamir, a 22-year-old Sudanese refugee.

This film tells the story of a brave and tenacious young man whose recent life has been a continual fight for survival in the constant face of aggression and rejection. Aamir’s encounters challenge many opinions people hold about refugees forced to escape their original homeland and deepens the viewer’s understanding by placing them in the shoes of this lost soul.

The film had its UK premiere at Sheffield Doc Fest, its European premiere at International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, the largest documentary festival in the world, and its US premiere at Future of Storytelling in New York.

The film won the Grand Jury Prize for VR at the Encounters Film Festival and Best Director and Jury Prize Winner for Best Journalistic Achievement at the Social Impact Media Awards.
