Is Restrepo an 鈥渋mperishable record鈥?of the war in Afghanistan?
With Restrepo, I seemed to achieve the impossible: travel backward in time. I first watched 鈥淜orengal鈥? released in 2014, and just now watched Restrepo, released in 2010. These two films have been called an 鈥渋mperishable record鈥?of the war in Afghanistan.
What was the purpose of the out post at Restrepo?
The out post (Restrepo) they established saved many soldiers lives that followed behind them after they had left, and many of thier own while they were there. It was erected in a strategic location that changed the entire layout of the valley. The guys that were there before them for what ever reasons were not able to accomplish this goal.
How was the first Restrepo made?
This first film, Restrepo, was put together from selected pieces of film of the troops in action, and close-up interviews with individual soldiers (many of those interviews conducted after they rotated out of the Korengal, often out of Afghanistan altogether).
