FOLLOW-UP FILM HEARS US SOLDIER’S THOUGHTS ON AFGHAN WAR

0

LOS ANGELES: Four years after making Oscar-nominated film Restrepo, about soldiers’ life on the Afghan frontline, Sebastian Junger focuses on their thoughts on war, addiction and friendship, in a long-awaited follow-up. 2010’s Restrepo, named after a tiny military outpost in northeastern Afghanistan, won an Academy Award nod for US journalist Junger and his British co-director Tim Hetherington. But Hetherington died while reporting in Libya in 2011, forcing Junger to delay Korengal, which is released in the US this month, and which explores the young veterans’ thoughts once back home. “I really wanted to try to understand more deeply the experience of combat and how it affects young men,” Junger told Agence France-Presse.
