SMALL BEST-SHORTS-Excellence-logo-black

Dissent Projects is proud to say that our latest documentary, ‘Eyes of St John’ about St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital Group, has been given an award of excellence by The Best Shorts Film Competition.http://www.bestshorts.net/

This project which was directed by Carlo Nero and produced by Carlo and Vanessa Redgrave, sheds light on the vital work undertaken everyday across Israel and Palestine by the St John team.

Dissent Projects was touched by the tireless efforts of the volunteers and medical workers who through the hospitals and satellite eye care clinics make a real difference to people’s lives in a part of the world blighted by conflict.

‘Eyes of St John’ therefore typifies the sort of projects Dissent likes to get involved in and support and so we are extremely grateful for this award and the recognition it represents.

The judges at The Best Shorts base their decisions on the quality,creativity and technical aspects of each piece.
Previous winners include the Weinstein Company for Market Hours, and Oscar winning production Mr.Hublot.
Therefore in winning a Best Shorts Award, Dissent Project’s latest work reflects the tremendous effort made by Carlo Nero and Vanessa Redgrave in making ‘Eyes of St John’.

For a chance to see this great documentary, a preview screening of ‘Eyes of St John’ will be held on Tuesday 12th January 2016 at 7pm promptly at the Prince Charles Cinema, just off Leicester Square. This will be followed by a Question & Answer session with Vanessa Redgrave, Carlo Nero and representatives from St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital Group.
