Dying To Tell The Story

This documentary studies the motivations of journalists dedicated enough to risk their lives for a story. Amy Eldon searches for meaning in the death of her older brother, Reuters photographer Dan Eldon, one of five journalists attacked by a mob during the Somali famine in 1993. In the film, she interviews other journalists and the sole surviving witness to Dan’s death and considers the importance of journalism.
