Jake Gyllenhaal & Jamie Lee Curtis Honor Late Photographer 'Hondros' in Documentary
Jake Gyllenhaal paid tribute to an inspiring photographer at the premiere of his new documentary Hondros!
The 36-year-old Life actor stepped out for the big day during the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival at Cinepolis Chelsea on Friday (April 21) in New York City.
Jake produced the film alongside Jamie Lee Curtis.
Hondros follows the life and career of famous war photographer Chris Hondros – who was killed in Libya in 2011 – by exploring the poignant and often surprising stories behind the award-winning photojournalist’s best-known photos.
“It’s a story of the harrowing parts of war, the beautiful stories of humanity that come from war stories, and the gruesome, cold, truthful aspects of war,” Jamie told Vanity Fair. “There will always be humanity amidst absolute carnage and chaos and brutality. If we don’t believe that, then we’re lost. [The] message that comes from someone who puts [himself] on the line to tell the truth is that humanity has to win. Every time.”
Also in attendance at the premiere were Chris‘s mother Inge and director Greg Campbell.
