Sebastian Junger talks about directing the documentary “Which Way is the Front Line from Here: The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington,” a portrait of the war photographer who in April 2011 was killed by mortar fire in Misrata, Libya, where he’d been covering the civil war. Junger is joined by James Brabazon, a war photographer who is featured in the documentary, and who was a friend of Hetherington. The film debuts April 18 on HBO, in conjunction with “Sleeping Soliders,” an outdoor exhibition of Hetherington’s work at The International Center of Photography.

A year ago veteran war photographers Chris Hondros and Tim Hetherington died of injuries sustained while covering the Libyan uprising. When friend, colleague and fellow war reporter Sebastian Junger learned that Hetherington died of injuries that didn’t need to be fatal he founded Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues or RISC. Junger tells Brooke why freelance journalists need the tools to save themselves and their fellow reporters on the battlefield.
