In the documentary 'Shooting War,' Franco Pagetti looks back on his work in Iraq
More than a movie about Italian photographer Franco Pagetti’s work, the short documentary Shooting War (23 minutes) is a lesson in practicing critical visual literacy. Beyond the photographer himself, several people chime in, including Alice Gabriner, International Photo Editor at TIME who assigned the VII photographer to cover the war in Iraq from 2003 until the end of 2008, and Sara Farhan, a History Ph.D. candidate at York University in Toronto
In Part Two of VII The Magazine's series on Libya Franco Pagetti looks at the rebel movement in the Benghazi area of Libya. Even with the support of NATO and the United States they have achieved little towards any kind of victory. The only certainty in this conflict is that the death toll will continue to rise.
