I hope it will have an impact on public conversation. I think about war. I think about the Arab Spring, and the dangers of war reporting, and the specific extraordinariness of one guy who died way too young.

Beyond war reporting

“Which Way is the Front Line From Here? The Life and Times of Tim Hetherington” is screening in the Documentary Premieres category at the Sundance Film Festival.

Wednesday, Jan. 23, 9 p.m. » Egyptian Theatre, Park City

Friday, Jan. 25, 3:30 p.m. » Redstone Cinema 1, Park City

Saturday, Jan. 26, 6:45 p.m. » Broadway Centre Cinema 3, Salt Lake City

More » The documentary is scheduled to air on HBO in April.

Also » In response to Hetherington’s death, filmmaker and writer Sebastain Junger launched a nonprofit called RISC — Reporters Instructed in Savings Colleagues — to provide free emergency medical training to freelance journalists. “Tim’s wounds were not necessarily fatal, but he could not get to help in time, and he bled out,” Junger said. “I realized if I had been with him, I could not have saved his life. Like most war reporters, I know almost nothing about battlefield medicine. Most of the war reporting done now is by freelancers, brave people who head into combat and hope for the best.”
