The Firing Line (2013)
30min · Documentary, Short · 27 December 2013
Each year, Firing Line steps behind the camera to speak to those who film on the front lines. In this program freelance video journalists share their stories which have been nominated in the three categories of the Rory Peck Awards. This year, the judges looked at more than 70 entries from around the world. The awards were founded in the name of Rory Peck, a British freelance cameraman known for his courage and getting to the heart of the story. Twenty years ago, Rory was killed by crossfire in Moscow. His memory lives on through the Trust which works on behalf of the freelance video journalist. Firing Line 2013 looks at the finalists and winners and their harrowing stories from Mali, Afghanistan, Somalia, Syria, Kashmir and Bangladesh.
