REPORTER, an Emmy Award nominee executive-produced by Ben Affleck, is a feature documentary about Nicholas Kristof, the two-time Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for the New York Times, who almost single-handedly put the crisis in Darfur on the world map. Now he wants to do the same for Congo, a humanitarian disaster zone where 5.4 million have died in the last decade as a result of the unceasing warfare over territory, resources and tribal hatred. But Nick knows that statistics deaden his readers' compassion. So to get the world to care, he goes in search of individuals whose stories will reflect the country's desperate crisis and galvanize readers worldwide. He journeys through ravaged villages and displacement camps, and makes a harrowing visit to Congo's reigning rebel warlord, General Nkunda, at his jungle hideout.
REPORTER was supported by Sundance Institute's Documentary Film Grant and premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and is released with the Sundance Institute #ArtistServices Initiative.
