Storyline

'The War Photographers' recounts the personal experiences of award-winning photojournalists who risk their lives covering conflict in the world's most dangerous war zones. Intimate interviews and gripping imagery reveal stories of sacrifice, courage and the emotional toll endured by photographers and their subjects. Stories include New York Times photographer Joao Silva revisiting sites in his native South Africa, recalling the violence that led to that country's first democratic elections in 1994. Ashley Gilbertson travels to Midland, Texas, for the final shoot of his project documenting the bedrooms of young soldiers who never returned home from war. Other photographers shares their firsthand experiences covering conflict in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan and the Middle East. Written by Anonymous

Dedicated photographers bringing the rest of us a world unseen.

Today is Veteran's Day 2014 and I thank your team for The War Photographers which I saw 2 nights ago at the Ojai Film Festival. I am not an avid movie person and I tend to avoid violent films. This film held my attention. The depth of the dedication by the photographers to bring the rest of us news of the real world of war and violence is heroic, including both women and men photojournalists. Next time you hear about harassment of these folks, please check out this film and be thankful that someone is filming the story of what is going on in the all too frequent violent conflicts that we engage in as a nation. There is a better way to solve human competition and alienation. Let's go there with peaceful conflict resolutions.
