INTO FILM FESTIVAL - A Private War
Renowned war correspondent Marie Colvin is remembered for her dedication to showing the horrors of war, using her platform to tell the stories of the communities directly affected by violence. Working for the Sunday Times, her career took her across the world with celebrated war photographer Paul Conroy, together reporting from some the worlds most dangerous conflicts, including the Syrian city of Homs, where Colvin faced her most challenging and final assignment. Spanning her personal and professional life, the film sensitively explores the cost her career had on her relationships and mental health, while also highlighting her inspiring fearless attitude and determination in the fight for justice. This is a harrowing introduction to a key figure in war journalism that effectively draws attention to the power of the media in international conflicts.
