NW Film Center & Literary Arts present KORENGAL w/ special guest Sebastian Junger

Korengal

In their Oscar-nominated RESTREPO (2010), Sebastian Junger (author of WAR AND THE PERFECT STORM) and Tim Hetherington shared the experience of a year dug in with the 2/503 Battle Company in one of Afghanistan’s most strategically crucial valleys, revealing extraordinary insight into the surreal combination of back-breaking labor, deadly firefights, and camaraderie as the soldiers painfully push back the Taliban. Junger’s new film, KORENGAL, returns to the unused footage from the first film to make a very different one—more about the men who serve, illuminating their backgrounds, thoughts, and motivations rather than their experience. “How does fear work? Courage? What is it like to come home from war? Why do so many soldiers miss the war they were in?”—Sebastian Junger. “It’s definitive. If you want to know the war and who fought it, there you go.”—Military.com. (90 mins.)

Director and journalist Sebastian Junger will introduce the film and answer questions.

 

KORENGAL screens Wednesday, June 4 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).

Admission by contribution.
