CAMP VICTORY, AFGHANISTAN
Assembled from 300 hours of footage shot in Afghanistan over three years, this remarkable documentary follows several US National Guardsmen, the Afghan officers they worked with, and the new Afghan battalion to be trained. Their stories – of frustrations and friendship across cultural, political and social barriers, and of huge challenges in training impoverished, illiterate soldiers – reveal the realities of building an effective Afghan military in a volatile, war-torn country.
Directed by Carol Dysinger
