Eyes of the Storm
Full Interview with the Filmmakers

WIDE ANGLE’s executive producer Tom Casciato interviewed London-based journalists Evan Williams and Siobhan Sinnerton about their experiences working with filmmakers from the Democratic Voice of Burma to gather footage after Cylone Nargis. The filmmakers made their own documentary, and WIDE ANGLE used this film in making Eyes of the Storm. Watch the full interview, part of which was featured in Eyes of the Storm, to learn more about why they chose to make the film, how they trained videographers to use cameras and to make a documentary, and the dangers these videographers faced while working undercover in a country where independent journalism is essentially a crime.
