“A THOUSAND TIMES GOOD NIGHT tells the moving story of leading wartime photojournalist Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) who is torn between a passion for her dangerous job and her loving but worried family. This affecting film, which won the Special Grand Prix of the Jury at the Montreal Film Festival 2013, resonates with Poppe whose own experiences from his years as a wartime photographer for Reuters and other media are reflected in the film.
Rebecca is one of the world s top war photographers. On assignment while photographing a female suicide bomber in Kabul, she gets to near, and gets badly hurt. Back home another bomb drops. Her husband and daughters can no longer bear the thought of her dying while at work. She is given an ultimatum: Her work, or her family life. The choice seems obvious.
Rebecca swears to Marcus that she will never go to a war zone again. Yet the conviction that her photos can make a difference keeps pulling at her resolve, making it difficult for her to live a normal life as a mother and wife. Then comes an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, a place allegedly so safe that daughter Steph is allowed to join her mother…”
Tiffen/Domke were excited to have been asked to supply a Domke F2 in black for the film. The request came as the production team were asked to supply brand on request as this was the kind of bag that would have been in used in such scenarios. Domke has always been known for its unsuspecting looks and tough rugged wear which was fitting for A Thousand Times Good Night. The film can be purchased on Amazon UK A Thousand Times Good Night [DVD]
