BAREFOOT FILM CLUB NIGHT – TUESDAY 27th NOVEMBER 2007

WAR PHOTOGRAPHER, a film by Christian Frei, is about a committed, shy man, who is considered one of the bravest and most important war photographers of our time – but hardly fits the cliché of the hard-boiled war veteran.

In one of the world’s countless crisis areas, surrounded by suffering, death, violence and chaos, photographer James Nachtwey searches for the picture he thinks he can publish.

Swiss author, director and producer Christian Frei followed James Nachtwey for two years into the wars in Indonesia, Kosovo, Palestine… Christian Frei used special micro-cameras attached to James Nachtwey’s photo-camera.

We see a famous photographer looking for the decisive moment. We hear every breath of the photographer. For the first time in the history of movies about photographers, this technique allowed an authentic insight into the work of a concerned photo-journalist.

When: this coming Tuesday 27th November, 7:00pm for 7:30pm START.
Where: Barefoot Gallery Cafe (please come even if it is raining – screening will be held indoors)
