A freelance reporter from Toronto who studied International Development and Political Science at McGill University, Jesse Rosenfeld has made the Middle East the focus of his work. Freelancer on the Front Lines follows his journey, presents a complex regional reality shaped by historical events, and explores how journalism practices have changed in the age of the Internet. Whether covering the dashed hopes of the Egyptian revolution, the upheavals in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the reality of refugee camps in Turkey, or the progress of Kurdish fighters against the armed militants of the Islamic State group in Iraq, the man is on a mission to share the issues on the ground with his readers. But to make headlines, he must set himself apart from traditional mass media and take a stand. With the thrilling pace of an action film, the documentary captures the ups and downs of a new and unconventional kind of journalism.
