An uncomfortable life

Watching A Thousand Times Goodnight, despite not being an extraordinary film, it helps to put the vocation of photojournalist away from those stereotypes that make it an attractive job for its apparent spirit of adventure and risk.

The film, inspired by the work of British photographer Marcus Bleasdale, explains that being a war photojournalist is not an option of comfortable life. And this can be extrapolated to any other field of journalism, where professionals lose much of their daily stability in favor of a common good.

Traveling to Africa to photograph refugee camps or investigate a corruption case in European banking involve a process of physical and mental sacrifices and a discomfort that sometimes outweigh any final compliment or bestseller.

Being a photojournalist makes cry, stress and panic, but also makes live!
