“Which Way is the Front Line from Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington,” Sebastian Junger’s documentary about the life and work of his friend and colleague, the award-winning photographer, will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January in Park City, Utah.
Hetherington was killed in a rocket attack in Libya in April 2011 while covering the uprising there.
When the premier was announced earlier this week, Sundance Film Festival programming director Trevor Goth told CBS News: “For me, it just adds another layer to the human cost of what that these guys are trying to expose. I think it’s going to be a very emotional moment at the festival.”
When the project was announced last year as a joint production of HBO and Nick Quested’s Goldcrest Films (Quested also produced Junger and Hetherington’s Oscar-nominated documentary “Restrepo”), Quested told RealScreen that the film would be based on a wealth of existing material, including interviews with Hetherington and footage of him working. “Tim was one of the most well-documented people you could possibly imagine,” Quested said.
According to Goldcrest Films, after the documentary premieres at Sundance, it will air on HBO.
