While we're reflecting on this year's FLEFF and recalling the eye-opening films shown at the festival, I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the work of filmmaker and photographer Tim Hetherington, who was killed in Libya last week along with photographer Chris Hondros.

We screened Restrepo at IC not too long ago as part of Buzzsaw Magazine's militarization week. The documentary showed a view of soldiers in fighting that I personally don't think I've ever gotten before from any other visual or printed work. The discussion the film inspired afterward got people to speak honestly about war and, despite how much the film had just showed us, just how much we don't know.

To learn more about Restrepo and the work of Tim Hetherington, here are some links:

Thanks for the links! I'd never seen the move Restrepo before, but I was familiar with Tim Hetherington's work. As a memorial to his great achievements we spend a class period in my Photography class looking at his achievements. His work is breathtaking and it's a shame he passes away so young.

Really a shame.

When I saw the movie this February, I kept on thinking to myself...how is this guy...not getting hit or hurt....or at least, why is he not freaking out.

It takes a really brave person to step into a war zone. The same can be said for someone who unswervingly and relentlessly tries to capture the truth. In this case...it's the barbarity of war. Tim Hetherington will be missed...not forgotten. He's an inspiration!
