I've shot a lot of infra-red colour film but have never seen a motion picture film made with it. Stunning work which illustrates the war torn life in the Congo in a most poignant way.

Richard Mosse is an interesting person, met him in person to talk about his future projects.

one word:amazing. two words:very amazing. three words: the most amazing. It is the second time that I seen it, but I am shocked again. A wow friend told me a link and I saw it, the first feeling is that it is amazing.

What's so amazing - that someone exploits a war and the pain of people to his benefit?
Yes, the colors are quiet unique, but what does that change about the subject??

If he was willing to risk his life for it? I have no problem with that.

I don't call that exploitation, any more than Nick Ut getting known for his photograph of Kim Phuc running naked amid other fleeing villagers in Vietnam.

EIR is very difficult to work with under any circumstances. In war, wow.

It's probably a very good and worthy film? but I couldn't be bothered to watch more than a couple of minutes. The film is more about the 'effect' than the story, it's distracting and annoying.

I watch documentaries, I like to think I take interest in the world around me so that I can make decisions and judgements about what I do and who I vote for. There's a good chance that film would be something that I would watch, but not in that format. Absolutely pointless, it adds nothing and detracts plenty.

Yes, in my opinion too. It is about an "effect", false color in that case" used to get attraction and draw people in. It is NOT about a truthful (if that is possible) documentary about what is going on there.

Just my 2 cts.

I think the novel use of color will make more people look at the pictures and therefore further spread the story of the war. This is what photojournalists do, and he did it artistically to boot. Hats off to him.
