Lions in Sight Documentary Wins Award, Shines Light on Lions’ Work to Save Sight
Journalist Peter Musurlian, an employee of the City of Burbank’s Public Information Department, received the RTNA Golden Mike Award for his documentary “Seeing Beyond Borders.” He shot the film while traveling to Mexico on an eyeglass mission with Lions in Sight (LIS) volunteers from California and Nevada.
Peter learned about LIS from Lion Marva Murphy, a member of the Burbank Noon Lions Club. When Marva asked Peter to donate his skills to edit video of an LIS mission to Nepal, he wanted to tell the LIS story from start to finish. So, he joined LIS on their next mission to detail the volunteer effort – and the benefit to the poor.
