A massive congrats to Spirit Level Film alumni Joanna Natasegara and the team behind "Virunga" on their Oscar nomination for best documentary - a fantastic achievement!
Jo joined us for The Ministry of Truth in 2006 and stayed the course [with adventures too numerous to mention along the way] through to our most recent series - The Price of Kings.
Here's hoping the Oscar nomination turns into a very well deserved statuette and sees Jo on stage (probably wearing something other than Yasser Arafat's favourite jacket - though we wouldn't put it past her).
And if you're wondering, yes - that really is Arafat's jacket. The gentleman with Jo is Munib Al Musri - one of Arafat's early financial backers - whilst filming for The Price of Kings in the West Bank. But that's another story.
If you haven't seen Virunga yet - check it out on Netflix.
