If pictures of suffering - poverty, disease, war - have less impact in a global age saturated by visual images of suffering, what is the role of filmmakers and photojournalists? This event will discuss the role and changing practises and ethics of photographers ans film makers faced with so-called 'compassion fatigue'.
