Co-directed by Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington. 2010. 94 min.
Join Sebastian Junger, world-renowned author of War and The Perfect Storm, and Sgt. Brendan O'Byrne, 173rd Airborne, for conversation and a screening of Restrepo this week at the Bronx Documentary Center.
Co-directed by the late Tim Hetherington, the Oscar-nominated Restrepo is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley. It was considered one of the most dangerous postings in the U.S. military. This is an entirely experiential film: the cameras never leave the valley; there are no interviews with generals or diplomats. The only goal is to make viewers feel as if they have just been through a 94-minute deployment. This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up to you.
