War Photographer is a documentary and tribute to American photographer James Nachtwey.
Swiss author, director and producer Christian Frei filmed James for two years through the conflicts in Indonesia, Kosovo, and Palestine. Frei attached micro-cameras to James's camera, giving the viewer a first person experience.
A thoughtful and visually beautiful film... a real eye-opener on the ethics of war-photography. Watch this important movie... even if it takes a couple sittings...

Cornelia Hesse-Honegger was a Swiss scientific illustrator and artist. She studied mutated insects found near Chernobyl and nuclear power plants all over the world. She worked at the University of Zurich, drawing deformed insects she collected in the field, and later, painting them for her own interest. These watercolors are now exhibited internationally at museums+galleries. Some of her published work received criticism from the Swiss scientific community, as many were in denial about the severe and devastating effects of radiation on living things. This adversity only propelled Cornelia to learn more about the effects of radiation on the health of insects. Cornelia showed her work in order to educate the public on the issues of nuclear power/radiation.
Gabriel Allard Gagnon, André Péloquin, Guillaume Marin. 2008. This short experimental film shows musician Matt Fuzz riding his bike around Montreal-along to the radical 'Game Boy' sounding music he created. I saw this film last year at Pop Montreal-in association with the Making Music 2007 emerging filmmaker initiative.
Check Matt's "Fatman Scoop remix" of this tune... totally bananas. mattfuzzmyspace
