What is the first thing you think of when the guy behind you gets his legs blown off? What time is it when it hits ‘bomb o’clock’? How do you fall for a woman, who then reveals herself as an assassin?
"A Good Day To Die, Hoka Hey" is a narrative feature documenting the life story and extraordinary adventures of British conflict photographer, Jason P. Howe. Taking 6 years to make, this is a story about a man who chose a life of perpetual peril in pursuit of the perfect image, and what it takes to publish the images for the world to see.
Jason survived 12 years on the frontline of four wars, capturing images of humanity at war, its suffering, and cultures in disarray. This is not a film about war. It is an insight on how passion led to the downward spiral of disillusionment in this crazy tale of survival and change. Jason went down the rabbit hole, and we don’t know if he has fully come back out.
