On Wednesday, January 30, the International Center of Photography (ICP) will screen Andrea Pritchard’s new documentary, Rise: Women on the Frontline, featuring “conflict photojournalists” Alexandra Avakian, Carol Guzy, and Yunghi Kim. Afterwards, Pritchard, along with Avakian, Guzy, and Kim, will discuss the film and “their experiences covering tension and unrest.” Indira Williams Babic, director of photography and visual resources at Newseum in Washington, DC, will moderate the discussion.

Risk: Women on the Frontline provides meaningful insight on the work of women photojournalists, illuminating their struggles and reasons for returning. The ICP’s website describes the film as “An intimate portrait about a select group of storytellers.”

The event is free, but guests should register in advance to ensure seating. More information on the event and the women involved can be found here.

When: Wednesday, January 30, 7–9pm
Where: International Center of Photography, ICP School Shooting Studio, 1114 Avenue of the Americas, Lenox Hill, Manhattan

  1. This film sounds like something our organization might like to show. Central Theater hosts a Women’s Film Festival each year and is starting its first year hosting a photography festival is well. Who could we contact to see about scheduling this film for our lineup for either this year or the next?
