MAGNUM STORY 3, THE

UK, 1989 (MIFF 2007, Magnum In Motion)

Director: Patricia Wheatley, Rosemary Bowen-Jones

Part III of The Magnum Story brings Magnum into the 80s, a time when television and shrinking magazine markets had the agency, apparently, in a state of perpetual crisis. In particular, the film charts an assignment to China, which caught the beginning of protests leading to the Tianamen Square massacre.
