On November 11, 2021, the Impact Talks will kick off its first-ever session with seasoned journalist and filmmaker Leah Borromeo, who will share her experience as the impact producer of the 2019 documentary The Nightcrawlers. The gripping documentary by Alexander Mora follows photojournalist Raffy Lerma and the “Manila Nightcrawlers”, a group of photojournalists on a mission to expose the human cost of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs.
A collaboration between EngageMedia and In-Docs, the Impact Talks are a series of public meetings amongst filmmakers, activists, campaigners, film curators, impact producers, and interested audiences to share and discuss experiences and ideas around creating impact through film in the Asia-Pacific.
The session is scheduled for November 11, 3PM to 4PM Bangkok time (UTC+7), and is open to the public.
