Author and Restrepo director Tim Hetherington was killed while reporting in Libya.
Here’s more about his literary work: “His project Healing Sport was published by Thames and Hudson as part of group project Tales of a Globalizing World (Thames & Hudson 2003). Long Story Bit By Bit:Liberia Retold (Umbrage Editions 2009) narrates recent Liberian history by drawing on images and interviews made over a five year period. A new book, Infidel (Chris Boot Ltd 2010), about a group of US soldiers in Afghanistan, continues the examination of young men and conflict.”
In the documentary trailer embedded above (with NSFW language), Hetherington teamed up with journalist and author Sebastian Junger to report in one of the deadliest war zones on earth. Together, they created Restrepo–the winner of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival documentary grand jury prize.
