Restrepo the award-winning film by Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington airs tonight on the National Geographic Channel at 9:00 PM EST.
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 soldiers; there are no interviews with generals or diplomats. The only goal is to make viewers feel as if they have just been through a 90-minute deployment. This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up to you.
You won't want to miss this film.
