Preview Screening: A Thousand Times Good Night + Q&A | Frontline Club London
Apr 18, 2014

A Thousand Times Good Night tells the moving story of leading conflict photojournalist Rebecca (played by Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche) who is torn between a passion for her perilous work and love of her family. The film, which won the Special Grand Prix of the Jury at the Montreal Film Festival 2013, resonates with director Erik Poppe‘s own experiences from his years as a conflict photojournalist for Reuters.

On assignment while photographing a female suicide bomber in Kabul, Rebecca gets too close and is badly injured. Back home another bomb drops. Her husband (played by Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and daughter can no longer bear the thought of her dying for her work. She is given an ultimatum: her work, or her family life.
