Checking on the Arts: Tim Hetherington
Memphis, TN – Photojournalist Tim Hetherington was killed last Wednesday as he covered the war in Misrata, Libya. He made his directorial debut with the documentary "Restrepo", which chronicled the lives of a 15 man platoon fighting in Afghanistan. Last August, prior to the film's release, Kacky Walton spoke to Hetherington about what it was like to work under such life threatening conditions. His advice: "learn to control your fear...focus on the job at hand."
