PDN Video Pick: Tim Hetherington’s ‘Diary’

Diary (2010) from Tim Hetherington on Vimeo.

This 20-minute film was created last year by photographer and filmmaker Tim Hetherington, who was killed on April 20, 2011, in Misrata, Libya. Hetherington died covering the conflict between Libyan rebels and forces loyal to Colonel Muammar Qaddafi.

Hetherington wrote of the film: “’Diary’ is a highly personal and experimental film that expresses the subjective experience of my work, and was made as an attempt to locate myself after ten years of reporting. It’s a kaleidoscope of images that link our western reality to the seemingly distant worlds we see in the media.”

Editor and director Magali Charrier did the editing and sound design.

    Such a powerful piece with fantastic/effective editing & sound design.

    It is not only sad that we have lost a great talent at a very young age but also his honest point of view towards world and life.

    The piece ends with a big question mark, hanging over our heads …
