The Center for Investigative Reporting is proud to co-present Restrepo, directed by Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger, at the 53rd San Francisco International Film Festival (April 22-May 6):

As unnerving as it is illuminating of the dangers, toils and absurdities of war, Restrepo is an intimate portrait of a platoon posted to Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley, one of the U.S. Army’s most dangerous assignments.

The film screens Friday, April 30 at 3:45 and Tuesday, May 4 at 9:30 pm at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas and Sunday, May 2 at 4:15 pm at the Pacific Film Archive.
