SEA SORROW marks Vanessa Redgrave’s debut as a film director and is a very personal, dynamic meditation on the current global refugee crisis through the eyes and voices of campaigners and children mixing past and present, documentary and drama in its reflection on the importance of human rights.
“Vanessa Redgrave brings a rare gravity to this kind of thing; when she speaks on behalf of the stranded children who are being denied the value of their own lives, it’s hard to imagine that even Theresa May couldn’t be stirred by the moral clarity of her demands. Most of all, the film’s macro perspective makes a compelling case that human rights need to be reaffirmed as often as they’re threatened, and that europe’s handling of this crisis will do nothing less than set the tone for the soul of the 21st century.” (David Ehrlich)

In the presence of Vanessa Redgrave and Carlo Nero (producer).
