AFTER MUNICH

AFTER MUNICH

Published under docs, sports, politics, travel, on Saturday 4, 2020

What began as the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, dubbed “The Happy Games”, the first in Germany since 1936 – quickly became a live and unfolding broadcast of terror that gripped the world. The Munich Massacre triggered trauma, revenge and forgiveness. More than an attack, that day marked the world, and changed the relationship between terrorism, the news media and us the viewer.

Ben McEvoy of Friends & Enemies approached Booker to direct and co-write, edit and produce the video content for the interactive CMF website companion to Francine Zuckerman’s After Munich CBC Documentary Channel film — widening the lens beyond the events of in Munich in September 1972 to show how they shaped the relationship between terrorism and the media.
