Louise Leitch is currently attending the Australian International Documentary Conference in Melbourne to pitch her feature-length documentary, Unseen. Unseen tells the story of award-winning human rights photographer, Robin Hammond, who saw something he couldn’t ignore that has compelled him to cross the line from witness to activist.
The international cinema documentary, Unseen, is in development with the New Zealand Film Commission. Unseen features New Zealand photo-journalist, Robin Hammond. Haunted by the plight of an intellectually disabled boy living shackled to the floor of a South Sudanese prison, Hammond returns to the war torn region to fight for the boy’s release and mount his most ambitious campaign ever. Unseen is originated, written and directed by Louise Leitch.
