"It's doubtful you'll ever see a combat documentary that channels the chaos of war as thoroughly as this one."—Entertainment Weekly

"An unsentimental, admiring look at a soldier's life in one of the deadliest theaters of combat that's ever been. The combat footage is unlike anything ever seen in a documentary..."—The A.V. Club

Restrepo is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley. The movie focuses on a remote 15-man outpost, "Restrepo," named after a platoon medic who was killed in action. The area was considered one of the most dangerous postings in the U.S. military. This is an entirely experiential film: the cameras never leave the valley; there are no interviews with generals or diplomats. The only goal is to make viewers feel as if they have just been through a 94-minute deployment. This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up to you. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, Restrepo is directed by Tim Hetherington (a renowned war photographer) and Sebastian Junger (author of the books The Perfect Storm and War). (94 mins., 35mm)
