We recently added Restrepo to the DBRL collection. The movie played at the True False Film Festival in 2010, and has won several documentary awards this year, including the 2010 Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance film festival. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
This documentary chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley. The movie focuses on a remote 15-man outpost, Restrepo, named after a platoon medic who was killed in action. 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.
