Hi all! Do you still remember my 46-min documentary “In the Prisons that Don’t Exist” (Part 1 / 2 / 3) covering the detention of more than one million Uyghurs and other Muslims in the “re-education camps” in Xinjiang, China?
Well, it was nominated for Best News Programme at the Venice TV Award 2019!
Even though I didn’t win the category (Al Jazeera did – they covered an equally important issue on the Rohingya Trade), being nominated is a privilege and I’m very honoured to be recognised alongside other big productions like HBO and 101 East.
I wouldn’t have made this far without the help from many people. This award belongs to everyone who took part in the production.
And the best thing about receiving this award is that I can bring this piece of good news to those who appeared in my documentary, to encourage them not to give up on their beliefs and to keep fighting for their own rights. The world has not forgotten.
Thank you, Venice TV Award! ❤
