This fourth Other Story film is dedicated to all the volunteers who help the people who are refugees:
“This was the year of the volunteer. The men and women in hi-vis bibs who stood on the shore to greet the migrant children washed up on the island of Lesbos. The businessman who abandoned his desk to hand water bottles to refugees as they walked across Hungary. The Parisians who on a grim November night opened their homes to harbour those wounded or shaken by a massacre on the streets of their city.
They are the unseen army of anonymous people who emerge at moments of crisis and dire need. And this year, more than ever, they have been needed. They have given their time, their sweat and their kindness. They have done it for no reward – just to answer the call of those in desperate trouble.”

Other Story is an independant film project, collecting stories and gathering voices. One human being at a time. One story at a time.
