THE EXILING OF MY FILM , “EXILE A MYTH UNEARTHED”, IN THE BBC- An Update

Image

There  is  some news  concerning the saga of Exile in  the BBC  …and   for a change it is positive!

I had a conversation yesterday with  BBC 4 executives .  It was a good talk where we both agreed  that we would like to see the film broadcast in the UK.  We agreed to explore ( by examining  scripts and cuts )  the possibility  of showing a mutually  agreeable  60 min  version of the film followed by a discussion  program   where myself and others  will participate.

I will of course report here the outcome of this  process of exploration. But I think both sides are committed to do their best that it  happens.

As I wrote  in my first  blog I am  determined to  show  the film in the UK  on TV, in  public screenings  or both.  I believe   the dialog  with the BBC  is a positive step  to achieve this goal.

Thanks to all the concerned  individuals who sent me  emails,  and posted their comments.  I was touched and encouraged by your comments . They  only highlight  for me the importance of showing  Exile and generating a  discussion and a debate on the many issues it raises.

I am travelling this weekend to China for filming for another project and  we agreed that we will pick up  the issue when I am back on  the  May 14th.

I of  course will   keep  updating you  in my blogs on what happens next.

Stay tuned!

  1. A “mutually agreeable” version ? I guess it’s better than not airing the documentary at all, but still, truth is truth ! One does not need to make concessions to accommodate one party or the other. Still hoping to see the full movie one day. Keep up the good work !
