The Bang Bang Club tells the true story of four photographers who risked their lives amid gunfire - hence their name - to take iconic and shocking pictures during the last, violent days of South Africa's apartheid.

Their harrowing stories are captured in this thought-provoking film, which is released on DVD this week by Entertainment One.

Set in 1994, The Bang Bang Club is made up of four young South African men: Greg Marinovich (Ryan Phillippe - Cruel Intentions, I Know What You Did Last Summer), Kevin Carter (Taylor Kitsch - X Men Origins: Wolverine), Ken Oosterbroek (Frank Rautenbach) and João Silva (Neels Van Jaarsveld), as they set out to document some of the best, yet most horrific images of their lives - in some of the most hostile and turbulent places in the world.

Greg is a freelance photographer who follows his instincts to capture the rebels' point of view »
