Bare Witness 2005 single work drama young adult

'Set in the Balkans, East Timor and Iraq, against the complex terrain of contemporary photojournalism, "Bare Witness" scrutinises the way we view our humanity - through the fragmenting lens of the media. Searching for the pieces of herself lost to years in the field, a young Australian woman is at a point when thrusting the camera between herself and her subjects ceases to protect her. Photographs, memories and dreams collide in a physical multi-media performance that follows a pack of complicated, flawed characters who share the unbreakable bond of war journalists.'
