Info. on the film:
‘The Translator’ is one film in a series of three that will make up a feature. The first is set in Iran, the second in Greece and the third is set here in London. The Translator is an emotive character study of a translator working in an immigrations court. Ramzi, a recent graduate, is nearing the end of a work placement which will determine whether he will attain his goal of a permanent job. What he doesn’t know is that dealing on a daily basis, with often desperate people, who are having life changing decisions made for them, is draining. When Ramzi unwittingly gets increasingly involved with a defendant he is translating for, he realises his job comes with heavy responsibility. When faced with a moral dilemma, he must make a decision that might cost him his future.
