My series "Coney Island: A Beach At The End Of Time" explores the famed New York urban beach in gritty, grainy, high-contrast monochrome. The choice to work in this rough black and white style was deliberate—I wanted to covey the idea of the resort as a theme park at the end of its glory; the end of its time.
Adam Curtis‘ Bitter Lake is a phenomenal documentary exploring the recent war in Afghanistan through the intertwining histories of the US, Britain, Russia, and Saudi Arabia, especially through their various economic, cultural, and political interests
A successful mod photographer in London whose world is bounded by fashion, pop music, marijuana, and easy sex, feels his life is boring and despairing. Then he meets a mysterious beauty, and also notices something frightfully suspicious on one of his photographs of her taken in a park. The fact that he may have photographed a murder does not occur to him until he studies and then blows up his negatives, uncovering details, blowing up smaller and smaller elements, and finally putting the puzzle together.
The acclaimed British documentary filmmaker has released his latest film in unusual, forward-thinking circumstances.
BITTER LAKE is an epic documentary about the history of the West’s involvement in Afghanistan, mostly assembled from a 26 terabyte archive of unused footage shot for BBC News. Previously sitting on videotapes in cupboards in foreign outposts, it was assiduously collected by a BBC camera operator working in Afghanistan and passed along to Curtis.
Regarding Susan Sontag, now completed, aims to paint a portrait of the revered woman in a way that is both empathetic and honest, that reveals the living, breathing woman behind those courageous and incisive words. While Sontag’s legacy lies in words, it was the images that so captivated her and drew from her such fertile ideas.
Erik Poppe's film about a warzone photographer torn between work and home is drawn straight from his own life.
"Even if we're almost drowned by images, with messages trying to reach us all the time, there's no doubt that a single image in a newspaper or somewhere else can actually affect something," says Norwegian war photographer-turned-filmmaker Erik Poppe.
Editor's note: This short film contains some explicit language and images. Watching photographer and filmmaker Tyrone Lebon's short film Reely and Truly
Watching photographer and filmmaker Tyrone Lebon‘s short film Reely and Truly is, at times, a jarring experience. One moment you’re talking about fashion photography, the next you’re exploring New York City’s underbelly.
The Last Patrol, Sebastian Junger’s third and final chapter in a trilogy of films about war and its devastating effects on soldiers, came to fruition after he and documentary photographer Tim Hetherington made plans to walk from Washington D.C. to New York City along railroad lines.

Winner of the Best Documentary Award at the Tribeca Film Festival, POINT AND SHOOT follows Matt VanDyke, a timid 26-year-old with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, who left home in Baltimore in 2006 and bought a motorcycle and a video camera & began a three-year, 35,000-mile motorcycle trip through Northern Africa and the Middle East. While traveling, he struck up an unlikely friendship with a Libyan hippie, and when revolution broke out in Libya, Matt joined his friend in the fight against dictator Muammar Gaddafi. With a gun in one hand and a camera in the other, Matt fought in (and filmed) the war until he was captured by Gaddafi forces and held in solitary confinement for six months. Two-time Academy Award nominated documentary filmmaker Marshall Curry tells this harrowing and sometimes humorous story of a young man’s struggle for political revolution & personal transformation.
