His other documentaries include "The Last Just Man," "The Diameter of a Bomb" and "The Dark Years" an animated documentary that won the animation competition at the Ottawa International Animation Festival.

He was also executive producer on Roger Spottiswoode's "Shake Hands with the Devil."

"The Bang Bang Club" is his latest feature film.

The Bang Bang Club was a nickname for photographers Greg Marinovich (Ryan Phillippe), Kevin Carter (Taylor Kitsch), Ken Oosterbroek (Frank Rautenbach) and Joao Silva (Neels Van Jaarsveld) because they were always in the thick of the gunfire, or the "bang-bang" as locals said.

Witnessing the injustices wrought by F.W. de Klerk's lackeys, the young men knew that the truth had to come out.

Fuelled by adrenaline and moral outrage, they risked their lives to document the horrors of the civil war that wracked the nation.
With the help of Robin (Malin Akerman), their no-nonsense photo editor, their photos helped focus world attention on the plight of South Africa and galvanize international opinion to end apartheid.

Greg Marinovich and Kevin Carter each won a Pulitzer Prize for their astonishing photojournalism, but the horrors they witnessed took a devastating toll.
