In a part of the world where perspective dictates politics, it's critical for the photojournalist to capture stories without prejudice or bias. This shocking and revealing film follows Reinhard Krause, the head of the Reuters photo bureau in Israel, as he manages a team of Jewish and Arab photographers, helping them capture compelling stills that are persuasive but balanced, dramatic but not incendiary.
Using a vivid mesh of still and moving images, filmmaker Sacha Mirzoeff assembles a portrait of the dangerous lives of the photographers who patrol the frontlines of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As they visit the detritus left after deadly firefights and bus bombings, their public pictures take a private toll. In sum, it's the macabre consequence of being the world's window into conflict and tragedy.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Sacha Mirzoeff.
