The Academy-Award nominated, Sundance Grand Jury-winning Restrepo is a story of war, loss, tragedy and bravery which resonates even more loudly with the death of co-director Tim Hetherington, who was killed during mortar attack in Libya while reporting there. Hetherington had been scheduled as our guest for tonight. His death is is a great loss to his family, friends, and journalism. We are honored that author David Axe (War Is Boring) who has spent much time on the battlefields in Afghanistan – and hosted an FDL Book Salon with Hetherington’s co-director Sebastian Junger – with us tonight to discuss the film, being an embedded journalist and the war in Afghanistan.
Join David Axe (“War is Boring”) and host Lisa Derrick, 8pm ET.in to discuss being embedded, Afghanistan, the life and death of Tim Hetherington, and the movie itself, 8pm ET.
