When I was living in South Africa (I worked in news around when Mandela became President), I hung out with Joao & these great guys, now known as the Bang Bang club, who risked their lives documenting what’s really happening in the world. Joao is a sweet guy & risks his life so we can see what really happens. It’s a blast of reality for me.
South Africa is where I first got into the film industry. When you get into international journalism, you’re doing an important job and also risking your life everyday so that people can see the truth.
If you want to check out the book, Bang Bang Club, you can find it at Amazon.
Here’s the link to the Huffington Post page on Joao.
