Alhurra Television’s promotional video for the critically acclaimed series Delusional Paradise won a Bronze medal at the New York Festivals International Television & Film Awards. The five-minute video won in the category of Best Promotional Program. Delusional Paradise is a part of the Middle East Broadcasting Network’s (MBN) “Raise Your Voice” initiative.
Alhurra’s weekly program from across the Middle East/North Africa region features stories of families and communities who have suffered at the hands of Daesh (ISIS). These are the stories of living survivors who have been traumatized by Daesh. Whether it is a family member that has joined Daesh or a community that has lost loved ones at the hands of the extremist group, the program examines how people throughout the region are struggling to cope and tell the true story of the savagery of Daesh.
“The video is an excellent collaboration between the groundbreaking work of the Delusional Paradise team and Alhurra’s creative and talented promotional department. They created a poignant presentation that gives the audience a true sense of this incredible program,” MBN President Brian Conniff said. “I am proud to see that some of Alhurra’s in-depth humanitarian reports were also recognized by the New York Festivals.”
