New documentary film: "COURAGE - Journalism is not a crime"
Across the world, journalists are being killed, harassed and imprisoned for carrying out critical and investigative journalism. Still, many continue their reporting. This is the story of three such journalists. Lawi Weng from the Irrawaddy in Myanmar, Erdem Gül from Cumhuriyet in Turkey and Emin Huseynov from Azerbaijan all went to prison for doing their job. All are devoted to journalism, but under immense pressure by repressive governments because they seek to reveal what those in power wish to hide.
