Pulitzer Center grantees Francesca Trianni and Lynsey Addario, the team behind "Paradise Without People," the TIME feature documentary companion to Pulitzer Center-supported project "Finding Home," will speak at DOC NYC PRO on Friday, November 8, 2019.

Trianni and Addario will be joined by Nathalie Applewhite, Pulitzer Center managing director, and Justine Simons, supervising producer for video at TIME. The discussion will focus on the collaboration of photojournalism, reporting, and filmmaking that contributes to the making of a feature-length documentary. 

TIME Studios produced "Paradise Without People" following the success of "Finding Home." The film focuses on two Syrian women, Taimaa and Nour, who give birth in a Greek hospital. The documentary depicts the journey of the two women and their families as they navigate an "inflexible European resettlement program that rarely takes their needs into account."

The project "Finding Home" has been honored by the Edward R. Murrow Awards, the World Press Photo contests, and Pictures of the Year International.

DOC NYC is the largest documentary film festival in America. For more information, visit the DOC NYC website.
