This latest film in The New York Times' “The Truth Is Worth It” campaign from Droga5 NY explores global terrorism and the caliphate of the Islamic State. Titled “Fearlessness,” the piece follows reporter Rukmini Callimachi and explores the constant risk, fearlessness and instinct she requires to follow the truth from homesoil to warzones, on the ground and in life threatening situations, developing sources and information across the globe--just to give us a better understanding of the truth.
