The Cranes Call

Martin Kayser-Landwehr

The Cranes Call is the heart-pounding story of a mission to secure accountability for the mass atrocities occurring in Ukraine.

In this real time crime thriller set in a warzone, director Laura Warner embeds with war crimes investigator Anya Neistat and her team as they track down a group of survivors bold enough to take a stand against their families.

Working with the Clooney Foundation for Justice, led by Amal and George Clooney, Anya joins forces with Solomiia Stasiv, a young Ukranian woman just entering the field after witnessing the brutal invasion of her homeland. Together, they document evidence of human rights abusers in the fight to bring Russian commanders and soldiers to rial, and justice to the Ukranian people.

In the Shadow of Beirut is a searing, cinematic portrait of modern-day Lebanon as seen through the eyes of four families living in the impoverished Sabra and Shatila neighbourhoods of the city.

In the Shadow of Beirut is marked by a deep intimacy with its subjects and a bold cinematic style, driven by emotive character-lead storytelling. Co-Director Stephen Gerard Kelly built up his relationship with the families at the centre of the film over a six-year period.

Produced by Belfast-based Cyprus Avenue Films. Co-produced by Beirut’s Abbout Productions, Republic of Ireland based Real Films and Berlin-based Gebrueder Beetz Filmproduktion. In association with HiddenLight.
