Media For Liberty Award Ceremony Honors A Darkness Visible: Afghanistan

Stocks in this article: LMCA LMCB

Liberty Media Corporation (Nasdaq: LMCA, LMCB) last night honored the winner of its third annual Media for Liberty Award, a $50,000 prize that recognizes media contributions that explore the link between economic and political liberty. A Darkness Visible: Afghanistan, a film by VII Photographer Seamus Murphy and MediaStorm, was selected by the Media for Liberty Award Jury as the 2012 award winner. Print, broadcast, and online submissions were evaluated on criteria including relevance to the public discourse, educational value, mastery of the media format and thematic relevance.

The film is based on 14 trips to Afghanistan between 1994 and 2010 and tells the story of the often overlooked people of the country, and their desire for self-determination. From the Soviet invasion and the mujahideen resistance to the Taliban and the American occupation, A Darkness Visible: Afghanistan follows ordinary citizens whose lives play out in the shadows of superpowers.

“This film puts the relationship between political struggles and economic hardships into clear focus,” said John Malone, Chairman of Liberty Media. “In addition to being topical, it sheds light on history that even today is under-appreciated, and we are pleased to honor Seamus Murphy and MediaStorm.”

A Darkness Visible: Afghanistan ( http://www.mediastorm.com) was celebrated at an evening reception at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. The event was hosted by Liberty Media and emceed by Tucker Carlson, a contributor to FOX News, the editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller news site and a senior fellow at the Cato Institute
