I've been seeing alot of films involving photographers as the protagonists or main directors.. let's share some films where photographers/photojournalists play a major role.. These films sometimes help people understand and appreciate the work of a photojournalist
1) Blood Diamond : I love how Maddy Bowen, played by Jennifer Connelly, is portrayed as a romanticized PJ working in Africa shooting classic Leica and Nikon film cameras.. This film really got me interested in Photojournalism even though that isn't the film's main focus.
2) City Of God : No words for this, one of the greatest films i've seen.
3) Vicky Cristina Barcelona : Slightly boring.
4) James Nachtwey : War Photographer.
Films that I and the whole PJ world is looking forward to:
The Bang-Bang Club (2010) - This film is about the story of 4 famous South African PJ's (Two being Pulitzer winners) . One committed suicide over financial problems and mental trauma, one was killed in cross-fire, two still live to tell the tale. A famous story.
