MAGNUM STORY 2, THE

UK (MIFF 2007, Magnum In Motion)

Part II deals with the turbulent 60s and the work of the Magnum photographers documenting this exciting yet troubled decade. Spotlighted in this film are the Kennedy and Nixon presidencies, the Vietnam War and, on a lighter note, one of Magnum's most famous stories on the set of John Houston's The Misfits.
