    • Synopsis
    • In 1993 Robert King travelled to Bosnia, a naive 23 year old just out of art school with an ambition to become a war photographer and dreaming of a Pulitzer Prize. He hardly knew the rules of the game and seemed lost and out of place in the Sarajevo war zone, but he never gave up on his ambitions and over the course of the film we see how King grew as a person and a professional as he moved on to cover wars in Chechnya and Iraq. Filmed over the course of 15 years, Shooting Robert King shows the unvarnished truth behind the images that emerged from those war zones as it records Robert's life from boy to man, to husband and father.
