About the Film
Robert Capa, the world’s preeminent documentarian of 20th century war, photographed five epic conflicts on three different continents. A handsome, dashing figure, Capa was also a life-long pacifist who wore military uniforms, rode in tanks, jumped out of planes, dodged bullets, and marched in the front lines. His images have affected the lives of those who may not even know his name. As John Steinbeck once said, “he could photograph thought…and capture worlds.” With the full participation of his brother Cornell, access to IPC and Magnum, this is the first film devoted entirely to Robert Capa’s mythic life. Told with the help of his vast legacy of photographs and writings, it is a testament to great art and to historical horror.
