Deadline Every Second: On Assignment with 12 Associated Press Photojournalists

Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m.

Film and Discussion

Every day, more than a billion of us see dramatic Associated Press-credited photographs in newspapers and magazines and on the Internet. Deadline Every Second goes behind the scenes as 12 of the world’s top AP photographers gather breaking stories, from 9/11 and clashes in the Middle East to fires threatening Santa Barbara and cyclists racing in the Tour de France; from one photojournalist’s wounds in a suicide bombing in Pakistan to another’s imprisonment for his coverage in Iraq. In this impressive, action-packed film, the photographers and their editors share the stories behind the global headlines. Ken Kobré—filmmaker, award-winning photojournalist and author, and head of the photojournalism program at San Francisco State University—leads a discussion with Richard Drew (Associated Press), Charles Dharapak (Associated Press), and Shawn Thew (European Pressphoto Agency) following the film.

Online registration for this program is now closed. Tickets are still available for purchase at the door.
