War Story

I was excited about this mainly because i thought Catherine Keener was going to be there, but unfortunately she and the director did not end up coming. We went in a group mission and i don´t think anyone really liked it much. I did find it interesting though  since war photographers bother me in that they enter conflict zones then take pictures rather doing something more proactive, although yes of course photography can also be activism.

The Ben Kingsley scene got really into why war photographers do what they do (completely missed by Davinia who slept through that bit!) and it was movie gold to see Keener and Kingsley together.

I´ve really enjoyed Keener in movies like Your Friends and Neighbours, Death to Smoochy, Being John Malkovich and Synecdoche New York so it was cool to see her on screen. Only not in person, sob.
