Chip Duncan Film Series: “Mo & Me”

September 20, 2018 | 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Salim Amin, son and only child of Mohamed “Mo” Amin, undertakes a journey of recollection and reflection into the life of the frequently absent, globe-trotting father he loved, revered and feared. Training his candid lens across continents, Mo Amin’s thirst for breaking news puts him repeatedly in harm’s way — enduring weeks of torture, automatic arms fire, explosives and ultimately the amputation of his left arm — to become one of the most decorated news cameraman of all time. The film is underpinned by extraordinary images from the vast Amin archive — currently available at World Picture Network in New York — that mark and frame Mo’s life as it unfolds in a vivid and, at times, grisly tableau of international politics. (36 minutes)
