I haven’t seen this doc yet so I can’t say how good (or bad) it is but it looks pretty interesting. I will be watching it this evening when I can take a load off and veg out on the couch. The film follows the growth of a young war photographer over 15 years and three wars. Here’s what they say about it…
« Robert King, a naïve 24-year old budding war photographer sets out to become the youngest ever Pulitzer Prize winner for his photojournalism. In this extraordinary and compelling film Robert King resembles a heroic misfit straight out of the pages of Evelyn Waugh’s ‘Scoop’, thrown into the heart of battle, struggling to adapt to the brutal environment he finds himself in. Occasionally comic, often touching, more often dark, Shooting Robert King is a unique and personal journey, filmed over 15 years and across three warzones. »
