Screening: McCullin + Q&A
Followed by a Q&A with director Jacqui Morris and producer David Morris.
Widely recognised as one of the world’s greatest war photographers, Don McCullin covered virtually every major conflict and humanitarian disaster of the late 20th Century. From the Vietnam War to The Troubles in Northern Ireland, his iconic images have come to shape our understanding of modern conflict and its consequences.
Director Jacqui Morris not only explores McCullin’s life and work, but also the way the ethos of journalism has changed throughout his career. The film is a commentary on the history of photojournalism told through the lens of one of its most acclaimed practitioners. Working at a critical time in global photojournalism, McCullin witnessed many changes to publishing and editorial freedom for newspapers to print what they wanted.
