Phoenix Worldwide Entertainment, has picked up the world rights to the Theatrical Documentary A Good Day To Die – Hoka Hey. Putting their lives at incredible risk to document the front lines in hostile environments war, photographers play an often-overlooked role in news coverage.
A Good Day to Die is a feature documentary in the vein of films such as James Natchwey’s War Photographer, and McCullin, about the life and work of photojournalist Don McCullin.
A Good Day to Die was written, directed and produced by award winning filmmaker Harold Monfils. A Good Day To Die – Hoka Hey is a narrative feature, five years in the making, documenting the life story and extraordinary adventures of British conflict photographer, Jason P. Howe. Jason survived 12 years on the frontline of four wars, capturing images of humanity at war, its suffering, and cultures in disarray. This is not a film about war. This is a story about a man who chose a life of perpetual peril in pursuit of the perfect image. An insight on how passion led to the downward spiral of disillusionment in this film about survival and change.
In the UK the film will be theatrically released by Bull Dog Film Distribution in the 2nd Quarter 2017. Alan Partington, Bulldog’s MD, commented: “This documentary deserves to reach a wide audience across all media and we look forward to working closely with Director Harold Monfils and also Jason P. Howe.” – Business of Film
