Beginning with the war in Kosovo in 1999, award-winning photographer Chris Hondros served as witness to over a decade of conflict before being killed in Libya in 2011. Director and childhood friend Greg Campbell takes the audience on a stunning journey, retracing the path of Chris’s career as a journalist, while also revealing the little-known backstories that accompany some of his most influential photographs. The extraordinary life of the photojournalist, as captured by Director Campbell, is not just about the two- time Pulitzer Prize finalist and a winner of numerous photojournalism awards, but a portrait of the man behind the lens — a man of great sensitivity, who had an impact that extended beyond the moments he captured with his camera. Through the eyes of those around him — his colleagues, friends, and subjects of his photos — the film reveals how his experiences, with all the danger, the challenges, and the people involved, made him who he was.
Greg Campbell is an Emmy® -nominated documentary filmmaker, journalist and nonfiction author. He has worked around the world, including throughout Africa and the Middle East. His work has appeared in the New York Times, USA Today, The Economist, The Guardian, The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, Salon and many other publications.
