Curzon Bloomsbury, The Brunswick

Celebrated war photographer Chris Hondros served as a witness to over a decade of conflict before he was killed in Libya in 2011. His composure under fire and his skill at capturing the humanity amid the chaos of war set him apart from other photojournalists, earning him a reputation as an unusually courageous and empathetic photographer.
In HONDROS, the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival-winning documentary, childhood friend and fellow journalist Greg Campbell explores Chris’ life and legacy, retracing the path of his career and creating a detailed and revealing portrait of a man whose innate humanity impacted the people he encountered in long-lasting and unexpected ways.
Greg Campbell is an Emmy® -nominated documentary filmmaker, journalist and nonfiction author. He has worked around the world, including throughout Africa and the Middle East. His work has appeared in the New York Times, USA Today, The Economist, The Guardian, The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, Salon and many other publications.
