John Aquilino Sr.,
This film is a real treat -- particularly for young women considering a career in journalism.
Barbara Kopple has done a wonderful job of portraying the challenges correspondents and reporters face during war. We do not get to see something like this from the viewpoint of women very often -- this is a real treat. These five women offer an excellent opportunity for young women who are interested in these challenging careers. And she offered us insight into women in different aspects of journalism -- from photographer to writer, from video-graphic photographer to an American woman working for Al Jazeera. This documentary ranks with some of the best -- and documentaries just keep getting better and better. If you like this film, check out Point of View or Independent Lens on pubic television and look for the many documentary film festivals now offered.
