Restrepo, a 2010 war documentary film directed by renowned journalistic filmmakers, Tim Hetherington, Sebastian Junger who spent a year with one platoon in the deadliest valley in Afghanistan. This documentary explores in great detail the lives of men who were on the front line in the Afganistan war without leaving anything out over a total period of 15 months until their return home. The mission for the troops was to clear insurgents from the Korengal Valley and restore trust to the local people in the U.S Military.


As we watch the documentary Restrepo we are taken into the world of combat where every day is a new challenge and the only people a soldier can trust is the guys fighting alongside them.


The sequel to Restrepo is Korengal which is essentially “Restrepo 2” where the mission continues. A similar documentary is Armadillo.


In memory of Juan Sebastián "Doc" Restrepo (October 7, 1986 - July 22, 2007).
