The Emmy Award-winning CNN piece, “Why We Go,” takes us behind the scenes with the CNN News team as report on the deeply emotional story of refugee camps in Greece. We follow Wolf Blitzer and Senior International Correspondent Nima Elbagir from the moment they get the call from the CNN News Desk until the story goes to air. The project, which shot in three countries, includes :30, :60 and :90 versions, was directed by Klaus Obermeyer and edited by Union's Marco Perez. In October 2017, it was honored with the Emmy ® Award for Outstanding Promotional Announcement at the 38th Annual News and Documentary Awards held October 6th in New York.
