‘A Private War’ Movie Discussion
On Monday, October 29, The Washington Post hosted a conversation about the upcoming film “A Private War” with lead actress, Rosamund Pike, director, Matthew Heineman and Marie Colvin’s sister, Cat Colvin. The biographical drama depicts the life of American foreign correspondent Marie Colvin who was killed in 2012 at age 56 while covering the civil war and humanitarian crisis in Syria. Colvin put herself in harm’s way reporting on conflict across the globe, losing an eye to shrapnel during the civil war in Sri Lanka in 2001. Washington Post Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Mary Jordan moderated the conversation about the making of the film.
