Restrepo Nominated for Oscar: Best Documentary Feature


Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Restrepo is a feature-length film by award-winning photojournalist Tim Hetherington and journalist/author Sebastian Junger that chronicles the deployment of U.S. troops in the Korengal Valley, one of the most dangerous outposts in Afghanistan.  The movie focuses on a remote 15-man outpost, Restrepo, named after a platoon medic who was killed in action.  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.
