Long Story Short


“You pointed a camera at a warzone and you let it roll and people love that shit”.

Long Story Short sheds light on the ever-increasing speed of our digital lives and illuminates the implications of such a climate on Western journalism. Plunge headlong into the high-octane turmoil of a modern media world as a desperate sixteen-year-old tries to find his missing brother and a young entrepreneur sparks revolution on Fleet Street in the 1960’s.
