Harold Monfil's 'A Good Day To Die, Hoka Hey' Arriving In Cinemas And VOD

A Good Day To Die - Hoka Hey, the award-winning feature documenting the life story and extraordinary adventures of British conflict photographer, Jason P Howe, will be released in select UK cinemas and on demand from 16 June and on DVD 17 July 2017.

A self-taught photographer, Jason P Howe survived 12 years on the frontline of four wars, capturing images of humanity at war, its suffering and cultures in disarray. His incredible portfolio of work starts with his intimate, long-term project in Colombia during the brutal civil war and his relationship with Marilyn, an assassin for a right-wing death squad, before depicting his narrow escapes with death during his stints in Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan, dangerous conflicts that have shaped the present day.

Rather than a film about war, this is a fascinating and moving insight on how passion led to the downward spiral of disillusionment; the story of a man who chose a life of perpetual peril in pursuit of the perfect image, and what it took to get those images published for the world to see.
