Intro


HONDROS

A documentary film

 

Chris Hondros was one of the best conflict photographer of his generation, having covered practically every major world event of his adult life. Beginning with the war in Kosovo in 1999, Chris served as witness to more than a decade of strife and conflict before he was killed in combat in Libya in April, 2011. 

But he was so much more than a highly-respected and award-winning photographer. In this feature length film, Chris's friends and colleagues portray a man of unusual depth and sensitivity, whose passion for his craft continues to influence people around the world. Whether through his images, his friendship, or his humanity, his touch can still be felt in ways that are inspiring and unexpected.

Director and childhood friend Greg Campbell takes viewers on a global journey to meet those in Chris's most influential photos, and to uncover their little known backstories.

But Chris didn't leave the story in Iraq; instead,
he followed the repercussions of this event over the years.
