War Photographer

Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 36 min.

Plot Summary
For over 20 years, photojournalist James Nachtwey has been visiting war-torn countries such as Kosovo and Rwanda, capturing the destruction on film. While merely an observer, he still feels the immediate effects of the ravaged lands. The stark images are contrasted by Nachtwey's calm reserve as he fends off accusations of exploiting tragedy. Director Christian Frei attaches a small video camera to Nachtwey's still camera for a bird's-eye view of destruction, pain, and ultimately, hope.
