'Restrepo' Afghanistan film screening in SALFORD

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. 2010 Sundance film festival Winning Documentary to Screen in Salford on November 2nd 2010 @ 7.30pm



    The war in Afghanistan has become highly politicized, but soldiers rarely take part in that discussion. Our intention was to capture the experience of combat, boredom and fear through the eyes of the soldiers themselves. Their lives were our lives: we did not sit down with their families, we did not interview Afghans, we did not explore geopolitical debates. Soldiers are living and fighting and dying at remote outposts in Afghanistan in conditions that few Americans back home can imagine. Their experiences are important to understand, regardless of one’s political beliefs. Beliefs can be a way to avoid looking at reality. This is reality.

  2. I know that there are many who would like to watch this film. logistically it's not economical or easy for many to make the journey to see.
    Is it not time that it was released on DVD? I for one would purchase it.
  3. You can pre-order it on Amazon Adam.
