Today I learned about this documentary about war photographer Robert King.

The film is streaming here: http://www.snagfilms.c​om …tle/shooting_ro​bert_king/ (external link)



The tale of war photographer Robert King, a unique and personal journey over 15 years and through three wars

Sarajevo, 1993. Robert King is 23-years-old, fresh out of Art College and prepared to dodge bullets on the front line with dreams of a Pulitzer Prize. His dreams prove elusive.

Occasionally comic, often touching, more often dark, Shooting Robert King, is the tale of war photographer Robert King, a unique and personal journey which follows him over 15 years and through three wars.

Over these 15 years, Shooting Robert King records Robert’s transition from boy to man, to husband and father. It is a biography, which leads from reckless naivety to maturity hardened by war and softened by
family. It is a story, which forces Robert to inevitably question why he chose a profession, which involves an endless trail of death and destruction.


I just watched it and enjoyed it. In the interest of full disclosure, there are a few gruesome scenes in the movie.
