Sea Sorrow

Sea Sorrow marks Vanessa Redgrave's debut as a film director and is a very personal, dynamic meditation on the current global refugee crisis through the eyes and voices of campaigners and children mixing past and present, documentary and drama in its reflection on the importance of human rights.

The piece was filmed in Greece, Lebanon, Italy and Calais, where Vanessa focuses on the present and past history of refugees in Europe. She tells her own story beginning as a two-year-old 'evacuee' from London at the outset of World War Two; later as a student volunteer helping Hungarian refugees; concluding with her return to Lebanon to visit Palestinian three-year-olds in a refugee camp nursery school.
