– [Tony] How did you get that eye patch? – [Marie] At Treasure Island.
I need a photographer. Any good? – [Paul] The best. I can’t stop thinking
about it. – Well, as you go crazy,
it’s not something you get used to. – [Matthew] I’ve lived in that world
myself, so I think I’ve felt that same draw that covering conflict has. But also,
you know, what that does to your mind and your body, and I think that’s what a lot
of this film explores, is that duality, that duality of what it takes to cover
these stories. But also, you know, what that did to Marie as well. – [Rosamund] I’m very excited to show this
film in London. This is where Marie, you know, practised her craft.
She was a journalist for “The Sunday Times.” You know,
she was someone who lived and died pursuing what she believed in,
which was to bring stories from some of the darkest places on Earth to us back
in London. – [Jamie] I do think it’s a timely movie
in terms of the way we receive our news at the moment, and obviously the current
ongoing state and what’s happening in Syria. And it’s not getting any better.
And people are seeming to care less and less, and that’s not a good thing
obviously. And if this could have any sort of impact on reminding people of what’s
happening there, and the atrocities, and what real journalism is all about,
and risking everything to tell the truth, then that’s a good thing I think. – When you make a film,
you hope that you’ll be both timeless and timely. I mean, we had no idea that it
would be this timely. We had Jamal Khashoggi, you know,
killed last week, seemingly for speaking his truths, and speaking out,
and giving an authentic opinion. And I think, you know,
it just highlights the risk that journalists take when they actually come
to give us information. I think journalism is under threat. – You know, I think it’s a human story
about an amazing, amazing woman. And you know, Rosamund did an incredible
job embodying her and bringing her to life. And you know,
I think it’s a film that people will want to see, and I think it’s, you know,
a very timely film.
