Description

Thank You for Bombing accompanies three frontline correspondents in Afghanistan to their working place in conflict areas, sharing insight into their daily routine aside from cameras and satellite phones. This fictional behind-the-scenes war drama is a trilogy of cautionary tales about the journalists’ day-to-day lives and fateful decisions, walking the fine line between reporting the events and becoming the story, in a frenzied media environment where ephemeral news headlines are prescribed by popularity ratings.
