AN INCREDIBLY MOVING FILM THAT ENCOMPASSES A WIDE SCOPE OF GLOBAL ISSUES THROUGH THE INTIMATE REMEMBRANCE OF ONE LIFE
MAKES A STRONG CASE FOR THE NECESSITY OF CONFLICT JOURNALISM
OAKES DELIVERS HIS GENUINE PORTRAIT OF BOTH ONE MAN AND A WORLD IN TROUBLE
JIM IS A MOVING PORTRAIT OF COURAGE, BUT IT IS MOST OF ALL A CONCERTED EFFORT TO TAKE BACK THE LIFE OF JAMES FOLEY
The public execution of American conflict journalist James Foley by ISIS sent shockwaves across the world, but he was more than a man in an orange jumpsuit. Seen through the lens of Foley’s childhood friend, Brian Oakes, JIM asks why someone would willingly go to the most dangerous place on Earth to report on the plight of complete strangers, trapped in conflict. How does he respond when the conflict tries to silence him? Brilliantly constructed with unparalleled access, Jim is a harrowing chronicle of bravery, compassion, and pain at the dawn of a new war on terror.
