Osas, whose absolute determination to achieve his mission reveals that he is willing to sacrifice everything to leave Africa.

PRIX EUROPA IRIS 2001 TV NON FICTION SPECIAL COMMENDATION

BLOODY FOREIGNERS


Broadcast by: Channel 4 Television, Great Britain
Author: Omid Djalili
Director: Hillary Clarke
Camera: Graham Smith
Producer: Hillary Clarke, Lion Television Ltd














From Indian bingo callers to the truth about the lifting of the fatwa on Salmon Rushdie. A lot of award-winning, stand-up comedian Omid Djalili's material is based on race and his experience and unique slant on living in Britain as a 'bloody foreigner'. As the son of Iranian immigrants who came to England in 1958, Omid goes on a personal quest to find out what life is like for the new wave of asylum seekers, and to find new material for his stand-up show. Can asylum seekers inspire comedy? Omid meets Iraqi Kurds fleeing from Saddam Hussein, a boxer from Kosovo and a Slovanian gypsy family who are being deported. He joins in a demonstration to protest about the Campsville Detention Centre. He hears the refugees' tragic stories and asks if it isn't all a terrible waste of time and taxpayers' money and he gets some big laughs from the audience during his stand-up show.

 

Jury laudatio:
"A daring approach to one of the most sensitive and serious issues in Western societies: giving shelter to refugees and illegal immigrants."
