Join us as Brian Oakes, director of Jim: the James Foley Story, discusses his documentary on the life of James Foley. Described by Indiewire as, “An incredibly moving film that encompasses a wide scope of global issues through the intimate remembrance of one life”. About the film: On Thanksgiving Day 2012, American photojournalist James “Jim” Foley was kidnapped in Syria and went missing for two years before the infamous video of his public execution sent shockwaves and introduced much of the world to ISIS. Jim: The James Foley Story, by close childhood friend Brian Oakes, tells the story of his life through intimate interviews with his family, friends and fellow journalists – Fellow hostages reveal never-before-heard details of his captivity with a chilling immediacy that builds suspense. Made with unparalleled access, Jim: The JamesFoley Story is a harrowing chronicle of bravery, compassion and pain at the dawn of America’s war with ISIS.
