In August, 2014, a video of the public execution of American photojournalist James Foley rippled across the globe. Foley wore an orange jumpsuit as he knelt beside an ISIS militant dressed in black. That image challenged the world to deal with a new face of terror. And it tested one American family. Seen through the lens of filmmaker Brian Oakes, Foley’s close childhood friend, Jim takes us from small-town New England to the adrenaline-fueled front lines of Libya and Syria, where Foley pushed the limits of danger to report on the plight of civilians impacted by war.

Jim: The James Foley Story online movie review - Truth from the Field

I saw this at a sell out crowd at Hot Docs Toronto last night. All I can say is that there wasn't a dry eye anywhere next to me. What I thought was really moving was what the director said.

He wanted the world to see his friend Jim Foley as he really was, not by the various stories and false accounts that were circulating. What comes across loud and clear is that everyone that encountered Jim was impressed by his ability to connect with people no matter what their circumstances and also his lack of guile or ulterior motive. If ever there was the right person at the right time he was it. Although our world is totally connected, there is a huge lack of timely and correct information. We desperately need the Jim Foleys of this world.
