A short film by Emily Wakefield
A Chance for Chagos
‘A chance for Chagos’ is a short documentary revolving around the Chagos islands, whose people were exiled from their homes in the Indian Ocean almost 50 years ago.
The documentary will look at the various issues that have surrounded the islands and the potential for resettlement in the future.
This blog will take you through the journey of making a short documentary as I research, cast, film, edit and broadcast my documentary for a final year project in my undergraduate degree in journalism.
I will also have updates on current issues and extra parts of the vast story that I will not be able to include in the documentary.
A short history of the islands can be found here.
