    Mo and MeBroadcast instructor Susan Farkas invites the J-School community to a screening of the documentary “Mo & Me,” followed by a Q & A with the filmmaker, Salim Amin. Mo is Salim’s father, Mohammed Amin.

    In a career spanning more than 30 years, Mo covered every major event in Africa and beyond. He braved 28 days of torture and survived bombs, bullets, and the loss of his left arm in an ammunition dump explosion, to emerge as the most decorated news cameraman of his time. His coverage of the 1984 Ethiopian famine inspired some of the greatest acts of giving in the 20th Century: Band Aid, USA for Africa, and Live Aid.

    In the film, his son undertakes an investigation into the life of the frequently absent father he revered and feared.
