John le Carré, MSF and a new film by WPN Chameleon
Thursday, 7th September, saw a unique event at the Royal Festival Hall in London, and at cinemas across the world.
Author John le Carré, creator of espionage classics such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, appeared in conversation with Jon Snow, discussing the full breadth of his career spanning five decades, and reflecting on the continuing story of his most famous creation, the tubby, bespectacled spy, George Smiley.
A portion of the proceeds from the event - An Evening With George Smiley which introduced le Carré's new novel, A Legacy of Spies - went to support Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in their invaluable work supporting people affected by conflict around the world.
And as part of the event, MSF asked WPN Chameleon to make a film to show how important their work is, and to shine a spotlight on the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Yemen, which is still largely missing from the media landscape despite the severity of the situation.
The event, and our film, was live-streamed to more than 300 cinemas across the UK, Denmark, Germany, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and Russia. The event will subsequently be shown in Australia and the US.
