Dying to Tell the Story

Directed by Kyra Thompson; Hosted by Amy Eldon Turteltaub

This Emmy-nominated documentary studies the motivations of journalists dedicated enough to risk their lives for a story.  We follow narrator Amy Eldon on a personal journey to find meaning in the death of her older brother, 22-year-old Reuters photographer Dan Eldon.  Dan was among a group of five journalists attacked by a mob during the Somali famine in 1993; he and three others were stoned to death. As she interviews other journalists and the sole surviving witness to Dan’s death, we see her attin the peace she sought.
