RESTREPO Nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary, RESTREPO follows the brave soldiers of the 173rd Airborne Brigade was stationed in the remote Korengal Valley of Afghanistan - considered one of the most dangerous postings of the war. The soldiers of Second Platoon built and manned a strategic outpost that they named GÇÿRestrepoGÇÖ, in honour of their medic, Juan Restrepo, who was killed in action. This is their story, in their words. ARMADILLO Award winning film director Janus Metz arrives in Afghanistan with a group of young soldiers on their first tour of duty. Stationed on the Helmand frontline in Camp Armadillo the platoon fights increasingly fierce battles with an enemy that is nearby but rarely seen. As the fighting intensifies the effect of modern warfare is gradually realised as exhaustion, fear and adrenaline set in. Gripping, thought provoking and visceral, this is as close as you get to battle action from the edge of your seat. HELL AND BACK AGAIN The Oscar-nominated HELL AND BACK AGAIN follows 25-year-old Marine Sgt. Nathan Harris on his most difficult mission: coming home. After being seriously wounded in Afghanistan, Harris is forced to cut his tour short, leaving the danger and excitement of life on the front line behind. HELL AND BACK AGAIN brings the war home in ways that make gun-toting soldiering look like a day at the beach compared to the physical and psychological scars of returning home.
