“And this, ladies and gentlemen, will mark the day that open source investigation niche-ism really went mainstream.”

Huge congrats to director Hans Pool and his team, who followed us with their cameras to many places around the world for over a year. This is during the American premiere at #SXSW.

And huge congrats to @EliotHiggins, who has not inspired hundreds if not thousands, but has also managed to get many volunteers paid for the work they do. May the Emmy increase that even more to hold power to account.

(For those of you wondering whether I’m at the awards: no, it’s 3:27 am here, even forgot about the ceremony because we’re digging deep into continuing investigations 😅)

((Hence the typo here, it should have been “has not *only* inspired”, of course.))

Double Dutch win at the International Emmys! Congrats @rzbh and @AhmadJoudeh90!

“Dance or Die” is a 15-minute documentary about @AhmadJoudeh90, a self-taught ballet dancer from Yarmouk, a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus.
