Journalist and filmmaker Sebastian Junger will pay tribute to friend and colleague Tim Hetherington at a special screening of their war documentary, "Restrepo," this weekend.
Hetherington, a celebrated war photographer, was killed in Libya earlier this month while on assignment.
Junger will host a Q&A session after a special showing of their Oscar-nominated film, in which he and Hetherington were embedded with U.S. soldiers stationed at an Afghan outpost.
The charity event is being hosted by the documentary film festival Hot Docs, National Geographic Films and Realscreen magazine.
All proceeds will go to charitable organizations selected by Hetherington's family in his memory.
The screening is being held Saturday at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
