The witness of the atrocities

If the Action or horror cinema to the masses of people in the most inventive way the loss of life, it is an entertaining thrill; it empties out his popcorn bag and is glad to be home. The situation is different when the media confront with the images of real atrocities. You want to see something? The voyeur lucipinnis or, on the contrary, a morally-imperative? Of a person, moving in to bring us such images, is this film biography: Camille Lepage was a French photojournalist who lost in 2014, with only 26 years of her life.

Lepage had arrived the year before in the Central African Republic, as a result of the open war between the predominantly Muslim rebel group Séléka and the Christian Anti-Balaka militias breaks out. Foreign, and without any official order, befriends the French with some students. It is more difficult for the young woman to make your experienced professional colleagues with respect.

These are not skeptical, because Lepage is willing to maintain personal distance or in the case of decreasing demand to a hipper theatre of war move on. The scepticism is not unfounded: In an Effort to get the people close enough to Lepage to a kind of embedded journalist, and with an Anti-Balaka group in the bushes. You will not return alive.

Director Boris Lojkine, who has a Background as a documentary filmmaker, gives us a seemingly directly at the craft of the war photographer's part from a Scan of the corpse mountains on business negotiations with distant editors to the local Christmas party before the next use. The real photos Lepages see, reinforces the impression of authenticity.

With obvious admiration draw Lojkine and his Co-author Bojina Panayotova the portrait of an idealist (credible between vulnerability and determination for acting: Nina Meurisse). The slope to the sentimental-ISM, they do not give in anyway. You can call but remember that images are the most in the age of digital Manipulation and Fake News still has the Effect, when it comes to convey alien experience.
