This morning (April 22nd) a small private ceremony was held in Benghazi for journalists Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondos, killed while on assignment in Misurata, Libya. You can read CJ Chivers’ e-mail account of the service here and Al Jazeera’s response to the tragedy here. Earlier this year, BOMB’s Montana Wojczuk sat down with Tim Hetherington and his directing partner, Sebastian Junger, on the occasion of their new documentary film, RESTREPO; we are re-posting the podcast below.
Montana Wojczuk interviews Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington about their film, RESTREPO, winner of the 2010 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Documentary. RESTREPO documents Junger and Hetherington’s experience as journalists in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan, at the American military outpost of the same name, deep in Taliban-controlled territory.
