"Shutterbabe" on film
1 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this at Tribeca Film Fest last night. I was impressed with the filmmaker's efforts in telling the stories of these women journalists. She doesn't limit it to the current war they cover but includes flashbacks to horrific conflicts they covered. They all seem to be surviving, each admitting to the need to regroup every now and then. It reminded me of Shutterbabe, the memoir about a female war photographer with each section named after a man with whom she was involved with at that time. I wonder if such a book or film about male journalists would focus so much on the personal. A bit like Searching for Debra Winger as well.
