Photojournalist and filmmaker Tim Hetherington was a guest on GRITtv recently to discuss his Oscar-nominated documentary Restrepo, which he made while embedded with a troop of soldiers in Afghanistan. He spoke candidly with us about the dangers of reporting on war. Tim Hetherington was killed in Misrata, Libya yesterday, along with photojournalist Chris Hondros.
