Film screening of 'Mo & Me' in conjunctions with the Inspiring Change: Photography of Chip Duncan and Mohamed Amin exhibition at the Charles Allis Art Museum.
'Mo & Me' synopsis:
Salim Amin, son and only child of Mohamed "Mo" Amin, undertakes a journey of recollection and reflection info the life of the frequently absent, globe-trotting father he loved, revered, and feared. Training his candid lens across continents, Mo Amin's thirst for breaking news puts him repeatedly in harm's way - enduring weeks of torture, automatic arms fire, explosives and, ultimately, the amputation of his left arm - to become one of the most decorated news cameramen of all time. The film is underpinned by extraordinary images from the vast Amin archive - currently available at World Picture Network in New York - that mark and frame Mo's life as it unfolds in a vivid and, at times, grisly tableau of international politics.
