Movie: McCullin (2012): Documentary film screening

To many, Don McCullin is the greatest living war photographer, often cited as an inspiration for today's photojournalists. In this fascinating documentary McCullin speaks candidly about his three-decade career covering wars and humanitarian disasters on virtually every continent and the photographs that often defined historic moments. Exploring not only McCullin's life and work, but how 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 photographers.

In association with the Don McCullin: The Impossible Peace exhibition.
