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

Vanessa Redgrave
Vanessa Redgrave made her professional debut in the play A Touch of the Sun (1957). In the late 1960s and early '70s, she showed her mastery of both classical and commercial fare, winning an Oscar and getting nominated for two more, and more followed. Later a controversial figure because of her political views, Redgrave was called "the greatest actress of our time" by Tennessee Williams. Sea Sorrow is her directorial debut.
