The world rarely sees the challenges and dangers faced by native reporters reporting from conflict regions such as Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iran, Pakistan and Uganda.

Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE), Sheridan College and Willing Mind Productions present “So Far From Home”, an OMNI Television documentary film that offers a unique window in to the world of five journalists who did report from these dangerous places.  The film was written and directed by Vladimir Kabelik, a documentary filmmaker and professor in the School of Animation, Arts & Design.

“So Far From Home” documents the journalists’ experiences, their efforts to come to terms with their past and their struggle to build a future in Canada.

The film will air on OMNI Television on Sunday, September 27 at 9:00 pm. Click the link below to hear an interview by Andy Barrie with Vladimir Kabelik, which aired on CBC's Metro Morning on Wednesday, September 23.
