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