The Last Hope, a feature length documentary with Oscar and Emmy nominated cinematographer Buddy Squires follows Italian NGO ‘Emergency’ and their dedicated staff in Iraq, Afghanistan, Italy, Sudan and the Mediterranean Sea, rescuing migrants off the coast of Libya.

The Last Hope

Through the words of the men and women of Emergency, we explore the reality of war through their work with civilian victims across the world. What does it mean to be a victim of war? What is the true impact on innocent men, women and children? What do the affects of war have people and where does it leave them?

The Last Hope gives a unique insight into the lives of those who care for the victims of war, covering moments of pain, the simplicity of a child in need of primary healthcare to the brutality of a land mine victim and their journey through recovery to the opportunity to a second chance in life. Genuine care from ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances to everyday people in extenuating circumstances.
