The intersection of gender and war is often examined under two different banners, that of the victim of war and that of the soldier. This project looks at an underrepresented third party: the war correspondent. Inspired by the life of Marie Colvin, an award-winning war correspondent killed in the siege of Homs, Syria in 2012, “Much Love” is an interactive story relating the life of fictional war correspondent Bany Polzin. Among the themes examined are motherhood, friendship, and rape as a war crime.
