Free Screening of Restrepo at the American Theater!

Posted on 17 September 2013 | 3:22 pm — 

Restrepo_FILM (3)In 2007-08, journalist Sebastian Junger spent fifteen months embedded with a US Army platoon in Afghanistan’s infamously dangerous and remote Korengal Valley. Restrepo documents the emotions and experiences of American soldiers on the ground…fear and loneliness and boredom, bursts of excitement and laughter, and ever-deepening bonds of friendship.

Please join the College of Charleston’s Friends of the Library for a free screening of Sebastian Junger’s Academy Award-nominated documentary film, Restrepo, at the American Theater, 456 King Street, on Wednesday, September 25, at 6:00pm.
