Under Fire: Journalists in Combat at the Laemmle Sunset

Under Fire: Journalists in Combat is a new documentary by Santa Monica filmmaker Martyn Burke about journalists in the war zone. The film features interviews with war correspondents from the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, BBC and Reuters among many others. We haven’t seen it yet, but it opens tomorrow, Veteran’s Day, at the Laemmle Sunset 5. Sounds like a great way to say goodbye to the Sunset 5 before Sundance takes over.

More on the film and its director Burke in a nice profile in The Atlantic.
