Tim Hetherington
and Sebastion Junger’s award-winning documentary film "Restrepo" is
set to open in theaters starting on June 25, 2010 in most major cities across
the U.S. The feature-length film won the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary films
at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival,
and was purchased by the National Geographic
Channel.


Restrepo takes its viewers inside Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley to a remote
U.S. Army outpost where 15 U.S soldiers are in combat. In 2007 Hetherington and
Junger were embedded with the 173rd Airborne Brigade and made a total of ten
trips to the Korengal while on assignment for Vanity Fair magazine and ABC
News. There was no running water, internet, or phone communication, and for a
while no electricity or heat, just sandbags and ammo. Hetherington
gathered 150 hours of footage showing an intimate view of the daily life at the
outpost and a harrowing depiction of war.
