Sebastian Junger's Self-Financed and Self-Released Film Korengal - A Photo Editor

CLICK to purchase tickets a note from Sebastian Junger I’m writing to let you know that my next film, KORENGAL, is about to come out on May 30th in New York. Tim and I had planned to make a follow-up to Restrepo, but a few weeks after going to the Oscars,

I finally got a chance to see Finding Vivian Maier recently. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Going in I wasn't sure what to expect. I have mixed feelings about Vivian Maier and the way her legacy and has been handled. And this was a debut film by an untested film-maker which had received a range of reviews. Was it just a big commercial? Would it reveal secrets? I couldn't tell. I didn't even know if I wanted to see it.

A Photographic Memory

A personal documentary film about a daughter's search for the mother she never knew through their shared love of photography.

This project began when I uncovered some boxes of short films at my dad's house about the photographic icons Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Cornell Capa, Lisette Model, W. Eugene Smith, William Albert Allard, Don McCullin, and others. My mother, Sheila Turner-Seed had directed and edited the films in the early '70s. Since she died so long ago, I thought maybe I could learn more about her life if I retraced their origins.

And Now, Deep Thoughts About ‘Deep Thoughts’

Jack Handey’s absurdist affirmations were sharp, surreal and hilarious. Is it possible he influenced a generation of serious poets?

“Deep Thoughts,” which were later collected in a series of popular volumes, were designed to satirize the genre of the feel-good affirmation. Examples include: “If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.” And: “As the evening sun faded from a salmon color to a sort of flint gray, I thought back to the salmon I caught that morning, and how gray he was, and how I named him Flint.”
