The Unquiet Film Series Forum hits London agencies
Newspapers are all about stories - but sometimes the best stories are the ones we don’t tell. So we decided it was time to showcase just what the best journalists do… the real lives, real struggles, real bravery behind the stories that change the course of history.
The Unquiet Film Series Mini-Cinema presents a series of extraordinary and independently made short films about some of the amazing, true-life stories behind the stories - the death threats to reporters, the legal battles, the toughness and integrity it takes to get the article on the page - we hope you find them as moving and inspiring as we do.
Christina Lamb, bestselling author and one of Britain’s leading foreign correspondents kicked off the series with a frank and sometimes shocking conversation with Eleanor Mills, Editorial Director of The Times - joined by an audience at both Starcom Mediavest and Zenith Media.
Since starting out in Peshawar where her despatches with the Afghan mujaheddin fighting the Russians saw her named Young Journalist of the Year in the British Press Awards in 1988, Christina has won Foreign Correspondent of the Year five times as well as the Prix Bayeux, Europe’s most prestigious award for war correspondents and was awarded an OBE by the Queen in 2013. Currently Foreign Affairs Correspondent for the Sunday Times, as well as a Global Fellow for the Wilson Centre for International Affairs in Washington DC, Christina has been based in Islamabad and Rio de Janeiro for the Financial Times and Johannesburg and Washington for the Sunday Times.
