I’m proud to have made a small contribution to this important campaign by the fantastic charity Help Refugees.
They gathered a number of Britain’s leading lights including Rita Ora, Jamie Callum, the Freud sisters and Richard Rogers to step forward and talk about their origins as refugees who fled to this country.
When you consider all they have achieved and contributed, just think what today’s refugees might do if we only gave them a chance.
They’ve got #refugenes – have you?
You can find out more about the campaign at www.helprefugees.org.uk/refugenes
And please continue to help the millions of refugees still in need today

I helped direct the edit, alongside the project’s mastermind, the wonderful Lliana Bird and BAFTA-nominated editor Matt Gray.
Huge thanks must also go to my steadfast consigliere Enge Gray and Jez Spencer who both generously donated their time and resources to grade and mix the film.
They did their bit for humanity! Please do yours.
