the man who saw too much
david brill, combat cameraman
David Brill is one of Australia's finest news cinematographers. For forty years he has covered wars and disasters, from the fall of Saigon, to the war in the Middle East, to the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union. His profession has taken him to conflicts in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America.
His courage is legendary. But his unique hallmark is his intense personal involvement with every story. This approach, so rare in the cynical world of news gathering, has cost him dearly in his personal life. David Brill's own story is as compelling as those he has covered.
This biography is more than just a great adventure through the war- zones and hell-holes of the world. It is a moving exploration of the high price of commitment.
'Anyone can film guns going off. It's what guns do that has always affected me.' - David Brill
