You may recall a previous post in which Dublin-based filmmakers Conor Maguire and Paul Webster appealed for support as they prepared to travel to Greece and create a documentary.

Further to this…

Conor writes:

Last month Paul Webster and I spent two weeks speaking with residents, volunteers and refugees on the island of Lesvos, Greece. We wanted to understand what was happening on the island and any preconceived notions we had of the crisis were quickly challenged by what we saw and heard. In this trailer you will hear local resident Eric Kempson quantify the death toll in the Aegean Sea and describe the international response as we travel along the road leading to the ‘life-jacket mountain’ near the northern town of Molyvos.

    At the beginning: “If a plane crashed here it would be world news. We’ve had 14 plane crashes here. It’s just been hushed up.”
    At the end: “Everyone knows what’s going on here. It’s been all over world news.”

    Ok – I get what he’s saying – Mainstream corporate news media and Governments don’t say much about it – but the choice of words in this trailer is a bit silly.
