Cameraperson: Preserving Dignity

Clip: Season 30 Episode 18 | 1m 59s

Syrian dissident, Charif Kiwan, speaks to a university audience about the ethics of showing the violated, dead bodies of the victims of war or atrocities. When he asserts that showing graphic images is just about making money, a student challenges him with an example where a powerful image of a dead child turned the tide of public sentiment.
