Orange Smarty is delighted to have signed a new deal with the French Indie which sees the factual Specialist distribute Pernels’ newest title ‘Immigration: Tearing My Family Apart’

With Immigration being one of the biggest stories of our time and affecting many people across the world, this timely film made for Channel 5, examines what happens when international borders come into conflict with true love.

From the joy of finally being back together again, to the sheer agony and tears caused by regular goodbyes.
