The Guardian are kindly airing an excerpt from our film OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND for the next month as one of the women, Marjorie,
has a hearing this Friday (August 14th) to appeal a decision not to allow her 10-year-old daughter a visa despite having no surviving family in Uganda to care for her. We are hoping the exposure will gain her some
much deserved public support.
In addition to our own documentary on the subject, OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND, during the past months we have been filming and editing all the video content for a special charity site - The Testimony Project
designed to help asylum seekers and their families to cope with the terrible difficulties they face in the UK. We are proud to be involved with this issue which is dear to our hearts and hope that someday the harsh reality these people face will be recognized and they will be treated with the respect they deserve.
An intense period of editing, which involved the wonderful Editor Susan Korda, brought our latest feature film 'Borges and I' to it's final stages.
