Coming to theatres today, Friday, November 16:
UNDER THE WIRE

Director:
Chris Martin

Premiere:
Sheffield 2018

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Reykjavik, Cologne, Hamptons, AFI Docs

About:
The story of war correspondents Marie Colvin and Paul Conroy.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
War correspondent Marie Colvin repeatedly and selflessly put her life on the line to report the atrocities unfolding in conflict-ravaged Syria, specifically against its innocent civilians. This gritty adaptation of fellow correspondent Paul Conroy’s titular book puts the viewer under fire on the frontline alongside the intrepid journalists, using harrowing on-the-ground footage. A heart-gripping story of friendship and extraordinary courage, Chris Martin’s film is testament to journalists who risk it all and pay the ultimate price.
