The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) advocates for journalists who struggle around the world to tell the stories important to their communities. This film chronicles CPJ's work in the Middle East during 2001-2002, in the aftermath of 9/11. It focuses on Mazen Dana, a Palestinian cameraperson for Reuters who is the first cameraperson to receive a CPJ Press Freedom Award for his work covering Hebron; he returns to Hebron after receiving his award. After the production of this documentary, Mazen Dana was killed by U.S. soldiers in Baghdad in August, 2003. For more on his story and on the role of Palestinian journalists in the production of U.S. news, see the ethnography Back Stories: U.S. News and Palestinian Politics (Stanford University Press, 2013), also by Amahl Bishara.
