Last Images of War is the compelling and tragic story of four photojournalists covering the Afghan-Soviet war, who felt an intense commitment to provide the world with the dramatic images it craved, and who were ultimately consumed by the story and the conflict they reported on. Narrated by British actor Ben Kingsley, this unforgettable, Emmy-Award winning film explores the motivation and ideals which carried these three men (one English, one American and one Russian) and one Japanese woman to their tragic deaths.
