Over the past decade we have travelled across the world, spending long periods of time on the ground capturing the reality of people's lives in some of the worlds most difficult places.
MAKING CINEMATIC DOCUMENTARIES THAT TELL HUMAN STORIES
At the core of GroundTruth is our passion for cinematic feature documentaries. Since setting up GroundTruth in early 2012 we have completed IN THE SHADOW OF WAR which premiered at the Sheffield Documentary Film Festival where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Award. The film went on to have its international premiere at IDFA where is was nominated for the First Appearance Award and the Oxfam Global Justice Award. Our second feature documentary LOST IN LEBANON which we completed in early 2017 had its world premiere at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in New York. Since January 2017 we have embarked on our third feature documentary which will be completed in 2018.
We take our cinematic approach of film making to capture the work of foundations and initiatives all over the world. From capturing the prevention of child brides in Nepal to following the efforts of combating the use of child soldiers in Africa and the Middle East. We are hired as camera women, directors, producers and editors or we are commissioned to make the entire film.
"WE SEE THE FILMS WE MAKE AS TOOLS TO ACTIVATE CHANGE"
Sophia and Georgia Scott
"This is a moving, galvanising work that tackles this horrific humanitarian crisis with a fresh eye and ear."
Lost in Lebanon, Leslie Felperin - The Guardian ★★★★☆
"If you have ever wondered what life is like for a refugee then see this film. The refusal of these men, women and children to give up offers a ray of hope. A remarkable and humane film that never strikes a false note."
Lost in Lebanon, Lucy Popesco - CineVue ★★★★★
"The noble efforts of the Scott sisters are effective at showcasing the resilience and hope of these four individuals who have experienced such unimaginable hardships. As this compassionate humanitarian documentary shows, it’s a testament to the human spirit how people can survive through the chaos of an unexpected civil war that rips through their beloved homeland."
Lost in Lebanon,Lindsay Bellinger - The Upcoming ★★★★★
"In the Shadow of War agonisingly, reluctantly, but essentially shines a light on the “lost generation” of Bosnia that, without attention, will continue to wander in the dark."
In the Shadow of War, Andrew Latimer - HEYUGUYS ★★★★☆
