On April 22 Tribeca Films will release “The Bang Bang Club,” a film based on the true story of conflict photographers Kevin Carter, Greg Marinovich, Ken Oosterbroek and Joao Silva, who worked in South Africa during the final years of apartheid.

The film follows the four journalists through South Africa’s segregated townships as they document the violence between supporters of the Africa National Congress and Inkatha Freedom Party leading up to the country’s first free elections.

Written and directed by South African documentary filmmaker Steven Silver, the film is an adaptation of a book, The Bang Bang Club: Snapshots from a Hidden War, by Marinovich and Silva, which was first published in 2000.

The trailer for the film can be seen exclusively on iTunes, here.
