Netflix subscribers will soon be able to watch HONDROS, the documentary about late photojournalist Chris Hondros, who was killed in April 2011 while reporting on the civil war in Libya. According to entertainment publication Variety, Netflix paid “in the six-figure range” for the rights to stream the film, which debuted at Tribeca Film Festival in April 2017, where it earned the Audience Award. Director Greg Campbell, a longtime friend and colleague of Hondros, also earned a special jury mention for Best First-Time Documentary Director.
The film tells Hondros’s story through archival images and interviews with the subjects of many of his most important images. “I really wanted the film to honor the work that he did, to show the importance of photojournalism,” director Greg Campbell said in an interview earlier this year.
