Hell and Back Again

  1. Tuesday, April 9, 2013 7:00 p.m.
Image from the film Hell And Back Again
From within the US Marines Echo Company in Afghanistan, photojournalist and filmmaker Danfung Dennis reveals the devastating impact a Taliban machine-gun bullet has on the life of 25-year- old Sergeant Nathan Harris. The film seamlessly transitions from stunning war reportage to an intimate, visceral portrait of one man’s personal struggle at home in North Carolina, where Harris confronts the physical and emotional difficulties of readjusting to civilian life with the love and support of his wife Ashley. Masterfully contrasting the intensity of the frontline with the unsettling normalcy of home, this Academy Award® nominated film lays bare the true cost of war.
