Hoka Hey A Story of Survival and Change
Putting their lives in incredible danger to document the front lines of some of the most hostile environments on the planet, War Photographers play an often overlooked role in the reporting of ‘News’.
What’s the first thing you think of when the room that you’re sleeping in is blown to pieces? What time is it when it hits ‘bomb o’clock’? How do you fall for a woman, who then reveals herself as a female assassin and then deal with her savage murder by her own group?
Hoka Hey exposes the extraordinary story of award winning conflict photographer - Jason P. Howe - who braved the front line to capture images of humanity at war, its suffering, and cultures in disarray. His work has been showcased in many of the world’s best-known publications, such as The New York Times, The Telegraph, Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, and many others.
Jason’s journey exposes the physical and emotional impact of love, loss, friendship, suffering, and disillusionment. Especially the bravery it takes to survive the world at war, and what it takes to get the images published for the world to see.
This is not a film about guys with guns. This is a story of a man who chose a life of perpetual peril in pursuit of the perfect image. An insight on how his passion led to the downward spiral of disillusionment in this truly heroic, crazy tale of what makes Jason tick.
As Jason says, ‘Out crazy the crazies!’.
