A brief introduction to the TV show “Witness”

This is from 2012, for those interested in what motivated Michael Mann to get involved in producing the TV series, Witness.

Michael Mann’s film “Witness: Libya” premiered at the 69th annual Venice Film Festival – showing audiences a post-Gaddafi Libya through the eyes of war photographers.

Man Says:

I am fascinated with the unique way the show inserts the audience in a very intimate and human way inside a conflict zone. It could be a conflict zone that is of a large scale and in the headlines like Libya, but the insertion through the war photographer who goes right into the front lines gives a unique perspective. That perspective is human and sensitised. It’s not an external survey, it’s not a history lesson… and that’s what’s unique about it.
