No Ordinary Life

Heather O'Neill

In a field dominated by men, five pioneering camerawomen Mary Rogers, Cynde Strand, Jane Evans, Maria Fleet and Margaret Moth went to the frontlines of wars, revolutions and disasters to bring us the truth.  They were young and courageous, covering the biggest international stories of the past 30 years.  As colorful and accomplished, they made their mark by capturing some of the most iconic images from Tiananmen Square, to Sarajevo, Iraq, Somalia and the Arab Spring uprising.  But the world didn’t know it was women behind the camera.  In the midst of unfolding chaos, the pictures they took for CNN both shocked and informed the world.  Danger was an obstacle to be overcome.  This feature documentary by director Heather O’Neill, tells their remarkable story.
