Eric Daniel Metzgar

Reporter (2009), a documentary about the writer Nicholas Kristof, was directed, shot, and edited by Eric Daniel Metzgar. In the film, Kristof and two observers from his "win a trip" contest visit the Democratic Republic of Congo. Metzgar's narration, done in his own quiet and convincing voice, catapults this adventures-in-journalism story into an entirely different territory: documentary as spiritual and philosophic reflection. The suspense of Kristof's on the ground reporting is the basis for a lively and cinematic case study on the future of journalism and the most effective methods to cover wars and atrocities.
