Somalia: The Master Chef of Mogadishu"'The Master Chef of Mogadishu was a brave piece of film-making that showed a fresh perspective of life in Somalia. Beautifully filmed and observed, it was a story of hope, showing the resilience and bravery of one man determined to play his part in rebuilding his war-torn country. Where some films show people in the developing world as passive victims, here there was a real sense of agency. The jury all agreed that they would never think of Somalia in the same way as a result of having seen this film' - Television Award Jury"25th Annual One World Awards - Winner of the Television Award 2013
