AWARD HONORED WORK:After the Flood

AWARD SPONSOR: David A. Andelman and Pamela Title

VICE News devoted a full year to following the journey of Renato, a Guatemalan who had lost everything in two back-to-back hurricanes in the mountainous region of Alta Verapaz. In 2020, Renato and three other migrants embarked on a thousand-miles long trek to the United States. VICE tracked their harrowing path through Mexico, where they endured kidnapping and the demands of corrupt police officers and violent cartels. Only three of the migrants made it the United States. Renato was forced to return home. “After the Flood” portrays global climate migration at its most intimate level, documenting migration and its devastating intersection with violence and organized crime. The result is a powerful and intimate portrayal of the real-life consequences of climate change.
