“Moving to Mars” Cinema run

Moving To Mars

Moving to Mars: no it’s not a sci-fi domestic drama, but a feature-length documentary that I Edit Assistanted many months ago.

Two families take a remarkable journey in this documentary by Mat Whitecross (co-director of The Road to Guantanamo), which follows a group of Burmese refugees travelling from temporary camps in Thailand to their new home in Sheffield.

The ICA have kindly granted it a two week cinema run before it eventually arrives at More4. I think this is a fascinating and moving film, and it recieved a similarly positive reception at DocFest. There’s a Q&A screening with the director on the 22nd of January, which I will be attending, and I hope you might be able to come along as well.

IMDb page here, website here. And I’m outta here!
