This film is followed by a prerecorded Q&A.


As filmmaker Maria Carolina Telles comes to terms with the death of her father, a man who regretted never making it to the frontlines of World War II, she focuses her lens on the life of another man who had his own unique experience as a civilian in the midst of combat: award-winning war photographer André Liohn.


Telles’s film captures Liohn as he navigates fatherhood alongside the intense turmoil that comes with his profession, with much of the story told in first-person through Liohn’s own lens—on the frontlines of the Libyan Civil War and in ISIS-occupied Mosul, as well as with his children in Italy and his hometown of Botucatu, Brazil. As Liohn explores his children’s understanding of his job, he also attempts to come to terms with the work himself: What does it mean to be in the midst of a war zone by his own choosing? The film explores the modern ethics of war journalism, pondering whether Liohn is unafraid of death or simply putting his life at risk as a way to be remembered. -NC
