An honest, revealing and at times disturbing portrayal of the war photographer Robert King. Shot over a 15 year period the film documents the career of Robert from his first assignments through to the present day.
Shooting Robert King explores the complex web of motivations that drive someone to extremes: the insecurities and aspirations, the striving for excellence and acknowledgment and the seemingly conflicting need to be at peace and yet near danger. Over 15 years and three wars – from naivety to cynicism and finally achieving the recognition he sought, this film addresses the two questions that are always asked of those who report wars: Why do you do it? How does it affect you?
Highly recommended and available from the 27th of September.
