In one of the world’s countless crisis areas, surrounded by suffering, death, violence and chaos, photographer James Nachtwey searches for a picture he thinks he can publish. A film about a committed, shy man, who is considered one of the bravest and most important war photographers of our time – but who hardly fits the cliché of the hard-boiled war veteran.

 

The screening of War Photographer is held in partnership with the B2B DOC platform.
