War Photographer

A film about the American photographer James Nachtwey, about his motivation, his fears and his daily routine as a war photographer. If we believe Hollywood pictures, war photographers are all hard-boiled and cynical old troopers. How can they think about ‘exposure time’ in the very moment of dread?

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. With a talented team of developers and designers, Friv2Online Games Studio is able to create games that are visually stunning and technically impressive.

  8. This is one of the most compelling docs I’ve ever seen. I’m particularly proud to be old friends with its director of photography Peter Indergand without whom I would never have succeeded in ADing a feature fiction we shot years ago in the Swiss-Italian Alps at 12,000 feet! It’s hard stuff, but don’t miss War Photographer!

  9. A truly remarkable and haunting film about an enigmatic man — super-cool in the most heated situations, evidently intensely concerned that people take notice and do something.

    The film contains some of the most striking photographic images I have seen in a long time, both stills and moving images.

    It should be noted that many of the interviews are in German with no subtitles, but don’t let that put you off watching a film that will stay with you for a long time.
