Director Sebastian Junger debuted his documentary celebrating the singular artistry of fallen colleague Tim Hetherington – an award-winning photojournalist and filmmaker who was killed during the making of this film by a mortar blast in Libya. The film is called WHICH WAY IS THE FRONT LINE FROM HERE? THE LIFE AND TIME OF TIM HETHERINGTON.
Sebastian Junger (journalist and author of The Perfect Storm) and Tim Hetherington, made the amazing film RESTREPO that followed a company in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan. It won the 2010 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for best documentary and was nominated for an Academy Award.
The photo is of Sebastian Junger and James Brabazon, a journalist who worked with Tim in Liberia and was with him when he died. Tim‘s parents were at the screening and the Julie Nester Gallery in Park City is exhibiting some of Tim’s photos.
