Indie Trailer Sunday: Acclaimed War Documentary 'Restrepo'
One of my very good friends, Yama, that stayed in the same apartment with us at Cannes talked about this documentary quite a bit, not only because there were a few similar docs showing in Cannes, but because it's a great film. Today I wanted to feature the official trailer for Restrepo, a documentary about the year that journalists Hetherington & Junger spent with a platoon in the "deadliest valley in Afghanistan." This looks like it's an incredible documentary, definitely a strong Oscar contender next year, and National Geographic is bringing it to theaters this summer. I highly suggest watching the trailer and seeing the film this summer.

Restrepo was co-directed by Tim Hetherington, a photographer and cinematographer for The Devil Came on Horseback, and Sebastian Junger, the author/journalist best known for The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival where it won the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary. National Geographic is bringing Restrepo to limited theaters on June 25th this summer.
