The Miles Team is delighted to have won the Student Category at the One World Media Awards.
The Jury said:
'Miles Apart is made with maturity and confidence and stood out above the other entries because it feels
like a film, rather than a documentary. The lack of commentary and style of shooting permits us
to peer into the family life of three generations affected by the difficulties of rural migration.'
