New America is proud to co-present the talkback for the Hamptons International Film Festival screening of Hondros, winner of the 2017 Brizzolara Family Foundation Award for Films of Conflict & Resolution.
Known for his probing and humane coverage of countries ravaged by conflict, Chris Hondros was one of the world's most acclaimed war photographers when killed in action at the age of 41. Director Greg Campbell thoughtfully retraces Hondros's numerous assignments to war-torn nations, with a visceral understanding of the invaluable power of photojournalism. Featuring interviews with Chris's colleagues and subjects, Campbell creates a stirring portrait of the life of a pioneering photographer who committed himself to bearing witness to the human condition, to ennobling the suffering of others, and telling their stories with compassion.
Please join HIFF Films of Conflict & Resolution and Social Cinema@New America for a screening of Hondros and a conversation about the risks and responsibilities photojournalists face to capture the true costs of war.
