Film and Discussion: Restrepo

January 11, 2014

1:00–1:00 p.m.

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Restrepo (Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger, 2010, 93 min.) is a powerful documentary following a year in the life of an Army platoon in the deadly and remote Korengal Valley during the Afghanistan war. Shot almost entirely in the valley and without narration or interviews with generals and policy-makers to guide it, the film simulates the everyday soldier's experience of war: intense boredom punctuated by an even more intense fear.

In a conversation moderated by Stephen Mayes, Executive Director of the Tim Hetherington Trust, film co-director Junger, platoon member Sergeant Brendan O’Byrne, and photojournalist Michael Kamber reflect on the significance of the film in the years since its release, as well as the lasting impact of the work of photographer and director Tim Hetherington, who was killed while covering the 2011 conflict in Libya.

Presented in partnership with the Tim Hetherington Trust.
