Sea Sorrow
First screened in October 2017
Director: Vanessa Redgrave. Documentary about the escalating global refugee crisis and the value of international human rights law in protecting refugees.

Twitter Capsule: Impassioned and urgent, at times disheveled. Paradoxes of high-born radicalism are evident but so is true conviction.

VOR:   Some footage is so indelible, so important to see, that it endows the whole film with urgent value. Other sections can be shaggy or repetitive.
