Al Jazeera’s “Fault Lines: Haiti in a Time of Cholera” Earns Emmy® Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism

NEW YORK, NY, October 1, 2014 – Fault Lines’ “Haiti in a Time of Cholera,” a production by Al Jazeera, has been honored with an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism in a News Magazine.

The documentary was produced by Sebastian Walker, Singeli Agnew, Jeremy Dupin, Carrie Lozano, and Mathieu Skene and edited by Warwick Meade. The film begins in Haiti, where thousands died after a cholera outbreak. The focus of the film then turns to the United Nations in New York where Walker pursues high-level officials, including Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, to question them over their organization’s role in the outbreak.

“Haiti in a Time of Cholera” was nominated alongside “Made in Bangladesh,” another Fault Lines production produced by Laila Al-Arian with her production team Anjali Kamat, Tim Grucza, Andy Bowley, Warwick Meade, Paul Sapin, Joel Van Haren, Omar Mullick, Nafeesa Syeed and Mathieu Skene.

“Al Jazeera tells stories of people that are not often heard, and ‘Haiti in a Time of Cholera’ is an example of such a story,” said Sebastian Walker, who was both a producer and correspondent on the film. “This Emmy award is a testament to the team who worked on the program and an opportunity to draw attention to the scale of the cholera crisis in Haiti. We dedicate this award to our detained colleagues in Egypt - Baher Mohamed, Mohammed Fahmy and Peter Greste – and all journalists unjustly imprisoned around the world."

"We are grateful and humbled that this film has been honored in this way, it's a vitally important story, and one that Al Jazeera has followed for several years, and we are committed to continue to report on it in the months and years to come,” said Mathieu Skene, executive producer, Fault Lines.

In April 2014, “Haiti in a Time of Cholera” and “Made in Bangladesh,” were both honored with Peabody Awards.
