Please join us for the second of two public documenatry viewings, in recognition of Memorial Day. The first, on May 23, is an OSCAR winning classic  World War II documentary, Prelude to War, and the second, Restrepo, on May 31, is an acclaimed, candid account of the current war in Afghanistan.

Synopsis of Restrepo (from DVD case):

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. It 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 90-minute deployment. This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up to you. (Length: 93minutes)

Please note this film is rated R. It contains profanity throughout, and descriptions of violence. Read more about Memorial Day Documentary: Restrepo
