Human Rights Watch worked with photographer and filmmaker Tim Hetherington on many projects and stories, including assignments to Darfur, Chad, and Sri Lanka. In April 2011, only six weeks after attending the Oscar ceremony as a nominee for the documentary Restrepo, Hetherington was killed by mortar fire in the city of Misrata, Libya, where he had been covering the civil war. This powerful documentary traces Hetherington's work across the world's battlefields to reveal what made him such a significant talentand remarkable human being.
Join us after the film for a discussion with Peter Bouckaert, Emergencies Director at Human Rights Watch, and Kelly McEvers, a NPR Correspondent who covered the wars in Iraq and Syria.
Peter and Kelly will discuss the issues facing the men and women who bring us news and informationand the truthfrom the world's most inaccessible and hostile environments.
The discussion will be moderated by Nicholas Goldberg, Editor of the LA Times Editorial Pages.
All guests are invited to attend a reception with the panelists following the screening and discussion.
