This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Cathy Pearson.

In collaboration with the PhotoIreland Festival, the IFI presents Get the Picture, Cathy Pearson’s documentary introducing John G. Morris, former Picture Editor for Life Magazine, The New York Times and executive editor of Magnum Photos.

Morris’s unerring eye for the best shot has captured the imagination of the world and influenced our opinions. His long life and professional career in photojournalism has spanned 70 years and coincides with the evolution of the craft itself. He has lived through the many wars of the 20th century, narrowly avoiding death on more than one occasion, and has worked with some of the world’s most courageous photo-journalists.

Now 96 years old, he has recently found love again and is a sharp and witty raconteur with an extremely well-informed view of the world.
