The BDC presents a special double feature of award-winning documentaries Hondros and Which Way is the Front Line From Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington.
Hondros explores the life of photojournalist Chris Hondros, two-time Pulitzer finalist who was killed by hostile fire in Libya. The film directed by Chris Hondros’ childhood friend Greg Campbell takes viewers on a global journey to meet those in Chris's most influential photos, and to uncover their little-known backstories.
Which Way is the Front Line Front Line From Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington is a moving portrait of the acclaimed war photographer and filmmaker Tim Hetherington by his RESTREPO co-director—journalist Sebastian Junger. The Hollywood Reporter called it, “An expertly gauged epilogue to the life of a distinguished photographer whose emotional stake in his work elevated it beyond journalism.”
The first screening will promptly start at 6PM. Light fare will be provided between screenings. The second screening will follow at 8PM.
This event is held in conjunction with our exhibition War and Peace in Liberia: Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros on view at the BDC from Oct 26 - Dec 16, 2018.
