NEW YORK – Richard Drew and Charles Dharapak of The Associated Press are among photographers who will discuss their work as part of a series of screenings beginning this month for the new documentary “Deadline Every Second.”

Drew, based in New York, is one of a dozen AP photographers followed in “Deadline Every Second,” produced by Ken Kobre and John Hewitt. The film portrays the 12 photojournalists in eight countries as they cover war, political clashes, financial markets, natural disasters, sports and human interest stories. Drew, Oded Balilty, Chris Carlson, Jeff Chiu, Khalil Hamra, Julie Jacobson, Mark Lennihan, Bebeto Matthews, Lefteris Pitarakis, Laurent Rebours, Marcio Jose Sanchez and Tara Todras-Whitehill are featured in the hourlong documentary.

After each screening, Kobre will moderate a panel discussion with AP photographers and others. Drew, who is in the documentary, is scheduled to be part of the post-screening discussions at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., March 22, where he’ll be joined by Dharapak, who covers the White House for the AP. Drew will also be at the March 26 post-screening discussion at Columbia University.
