Vanessa Redgrave - Sea Sorrow

From Saturday Morning, 8:11 am on 17 June 2017

British stage and screen legend Vanessa Redgrave is in Sydney with her son Carlo Nero to attend the opening of their new documentary Sea Sorrow at the Sydney Film Festival. Redgrave decided to make her directorial debut on the film, which her son has produced, after seeing footage of the body of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi washed up on a Turkish beach in 2015. Sea Sorrow focuses on efforts in the British parliament to allow more refugee children into the UK. Redgrave has been an actor since 1958, when she first appeared on London's West End, and has appeared in dozens of plays and films during her acclaimed career, winning the Oscar, Emmy, Tony, BAFTA, Olivier, Cannes, Golden Globe, and the Screen Actors Guild awards.
