Two film premieres at Telluride
Two out of the three short documentaries at Telluride this year were directed by Orlando von Einsiedel and I was lucky enough to work on both. They're both incredibly important stories about two absolute heroes.
"In LOST AND FOUND (Bangladesh-U.K., 2019, 23m), a determined man, armed only with a megaphone, his determination and an unshakeable smile, sets out to reunite lost children with their families in the Kutupalong refugee camp in Bangladesh, which now houses over 600,000 Rohingya Muslims"
"In INTO THE FIRE (IraqU.K., 2019, 24m), a brave group of Yazidi women undertake the high-risk task of de-mining tens of thousands of explosives hidden in the wrecked landscape of Northern Iraq."
Orlando is at the festival now to present the films.
