Meet the Journalist: Ben C. Solomon

"The Fight for Falluja" is a virtual reality film that allows viewers to experience, firsthand, the battles Iraqi forces endured to retake Falluja from ISIS in May and June. Ben C. Solomon, the Pulitzer Prize-winning filmmaker and video journalist for The New York Times, chronicles the push to retake the city and the aftermath, not just of that battle but of the larger war that has devastated the entire region. The 10-minute VR experience is available on the NYT VR app, YouTube and Facebook. Solomon discusses his project in this Meet the Journalist video.
